Almost half of all jobs could be automated by computers within two decades and “no government is prepared” for the tsunami of social change that will follow, according to the Economist.

A 2013 Oxford Martin School study that estimates 47% of all jobs could be automated in the next 20 years:

“Our findings thus imply that as technology races ahead, low-skill workers will reallocate to tasks that are non-susceptible to computerisation – i.e., tasks requiring creative and social intelligence. For workers to win the race, however, they will have to acquire creative and social skills,”

Will the world population starve do to a lack of money from the lost jobs or perhaps will we start to flourish in creativity with all of the free time we will have once the “machines” take over? Is it up to you or is it up to your government to rescue you?
