Automation and Inequality

Tom Friedman’s January 29th New York Times column reinforces the argument I made in my series on inequality.  Automation is increasing inequality by eliminating middle-skill jobs.  It also reinforces the thought that we need to retool our education system to encourage more initiative and project creativity — it isn’t enough to be able to pass tests.  Kids need to get the idea early that they need to take charge of their learning and follow their passions.
