Respectfully disagree. The projected boom fails to appreciate the arc of technology innovations that will:

(1) make driverless vehicles ubiquitous, (2) reward the most experienced anywhere in the world for doing more work for more companies (regardless of geography) and reduce opportunities for less than stellar performers, (3) continuously eliminate rote jobs in which creating and maintaining remarkable human connection/rapport are less than central, and more.

As a society, we keep failing to train the vast majority of the present generation of young people for the actual world they'll inherit; instead, we force them to invest countless hours preparing for careers and roles that will rarely exist.

With few exceptions, future careers will either require technology mastery or extraordinary people skills.

Higher percentages each year will become their own bosses and enjoy the inherent risks and rewards.
