New Jobs for Old?
When automation began to displace jobs in manufacturing, the great hope was that the service sector of the economy would expand to provide employment for the refugees from industry. But rising costs threaten to price some services out of the market and others are just as vulnerable as manufacturing to sophisticated automation. Many economists believe we must look beyond the traditional notion of the service sector to the so-called ' information economy' to provide the key both to the eventual impact of new technology and to the creation of more and better jobs.
