"70% of the jobs that will exist 20 years from now don't even exist today"


Keep in mind that 70% of the jobs that will exist in 20 years don't exist today. Think back to 1988. At that point there was no Internet and no e-mail. You've got be willing to continually reinvent yourself. The typical American will have 5 careers and at least 15 jobs. Be ready to go back to school if necessary. As our economy changes, you've got to move with it.

Not completely improbable. 70-80% of the US population did work in agriculture in the 1870s, and it was down to like, 1/3 by the early 1900s, and 2-3% now.

I find it interesting that theyre claiming that this will be true in such a specific manner. Is this worldwide or US based? That would be relevant given that a lot of offshoring of jobs has been of jobs that would exist in the US had they not been offshored.

And if theyre talking about only the US, Id be curious about how theyd come to such an exact number. People have historically been bad at predicting the future.

LOL he's one of the people who pushed for funding DARPANET, the media said that...not him.

As far as jobs changing: 70% is overblown. Medical, accounting, police, law, education, construction, firement, etc... will always be there. Still, it's cool to know there's so much room for innovation....

Lets predict what kind of jobs will exist in 50 years

Inter-stellar commodity trader: brokering deals between asteroid mining cos and countries

Country resource swap trader: taking the currency out of the equation and creating investment vehicles that trade directly between countries (ex: venezuela provides energy to north brazil in return for soybeans. Now this is done through currency, in the future you could buy a note taking the currency away)

Gov't PE advisory: Just how PE now buys a company and improves it and sells it back, countries will allow PE firms to come in, buy a piece of a gov'ts role in a major industry (say, the copper regulatory authority in Bolivia), make the regulations more efficient, then sell it back to the gov't for a piece of increase gov't revenues from that industry.

Honestly, it's more likely that a currency designed to be global will replace the dollar and things will be traded on that. Direct swaps aren't likely. It's a cool concept though, so if you have more thoughts/info on it, I'd be interested in learning
