I think the biggest consequence to what Om predicts is a potential shift in how we direct young people toward professions that provide for a good life. (aka “the American dream”). When I grew up, and I think it is still the case, it was implied that the best professions, in most cases defined as the ones for which there is a greatest income potential, are white collar, which are the type of jobs at risk. The attack on unions starting in the 1980’s to just recently implied such “blue collar/union” jobs are “less than” non-union, white collar jobs. The huge wealth gap in the United States is a consequence of this direction, which has also transformed the U.S. economy from manufacturing to services. It appears that AI has the potential to force a re-calibration of what we consider good jobs, ironically through the same automation that eliminated so many blue collar jobs during the last thirty years.
