What is the future?

Tom Friedman's NY Times Op Ed

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

The Author of “The World is Flat”, Thomas L. Friedman published a New York Times Op-Ed this week, “After the Pandemic a Revolution in Education and Work Awaits.”

Ten Trends in Friedman’s Post-Pandemic world:

1. Some long-standing established institutions, like universities, disappear
2. Workplaces and workforce are transformed
3. Learning is the new pension
4. Work will get disconnected from companies
5. Marginalized labor compete effectively remotely
6. Trends in upskilling online- shifting from degrees
7. Technology empowers consumers to create
8. Radical Re-skilling & “just-in-case-learning
9. Trends in “no-code” software using AI
10. Education will be a hybrid ecosystem of company platforms colleges, and local schools.

Which trends will have the most impact on “The Future of Work”?
