The start of this Ted Talk has some interesting information. While the economy is growing, jobs not so much. This election season has attempted to place all the blame on a person.

This talk suggests differently.

I tend to agree, that we are moving into a time when we won't be able to employ everyone. It just won't happen. We are making things so much more efficient, fewer people can meet all the needs of business. Every recession, every contraction has RAISED productivity. That means that fewer people needed to do the same work.

There is no way to reverse this as technology improves.

How do we deal with that?
