The Economy that Never Dies

Hugh MacLeod:

"Business Insider projected in 2015 that over the next twenty years, we’ll lose 47% of our jobs to robots. So what’s protecting the other 53%?
Creativity. The fundamentals of humanity.
We will always need music, photography, books, stories -- the things that open our minds and stop our breath."

If you think making a living in these areas is easy, you're crazy. But, if you're creative enough to figure out how to do it well (like Hugh did), you'll never need to work a "job" again. 4 of the 10 richest people in the world are in the publishing business, and the other 6 rely on publishing to conduct their business. Stories run the global economy.
