If even half what Futurist Thomas Frey predicts happens then people need to prepare now and get their hussle up! I can honestly say that at the rate technology is moving I can see many of his predictions happening.
Futurist Thomas Frey who is one of the world’s most recognized trend spotters says that thanks to technology people will lose 2 billion jobs in the next 18 years. Thomas goes into detail on his blog, but in short the industries that will go away (with some new jobs created):
- The power industry (micro grids)
- Automobile transportation (going driverless)
- Education (OpenCourseware replacing teachers)
- Manufacturing (3D printers and bots taking over).
