THE FUTURE OF SKILLS employment 2050
Recent debates about the future of jobs have mainly focused on
whether or not they are at risk of automation (Arntz et. al., 2016;
Frey and Osborne, 2017; McKinsey, 2017; PwC, 2017). Studies
have generally minimised the potential effects of automation on
job creation, and have tended to ignore other relevant trends,
including globalisation, population ageing, urbanisation, and the
rise of the green economy.
