I wonder what they think of the economic environment for
the period covered in their forecast. The economic utility
of both humans and machines should very considerably
change; any long-term economic scenario should take
into account radically different organizational methods,
cheap little robots with image recognition taking over
much of current work, etc. If anybody was able to give
quantitative assessments of such things, I would drop
everything else I'm doing and go learn from them.
Maybe, I should start from requesting that report...
