Automation and globalization are shrinking the number of good, well-paying jobs. What's a person to do? What's society to do?

This lecture will offer practical advice for everyone--from people starting out, to older people wanting to stay relevant in a changing economy. Career Coach Marty Nemko will address a range of best-, moderate-, and worst-case scenarios for how the reduction in good jobs will play out. He will also propose a bold, but practical blueprint for what society and each of us individually can do to maximize the chances of that best-case scenario occurring.
