An Excellent Underemployment Mashup

With thanks to Randy Sargent for the referral, Jon Evans writes an outstanding mashup article in TechCrunch, “After Your Job is Gone,” that links to dozens of source articles to summarize just how the dynamics of job creation may be changing due to automation, and what social impacts this may have. Evants makes the point that as wealth generation maximizes and job openings minimize, wealth sharing may be one of the only feasible outcomes, and he rightly points out that developing societies such as South Africa may be living in the future– finding that even right-headed economic policy no longer leads to the unemployment levels once thought to be healthy. Even the comments at the end of the article are worth a read, truly.
