James Altucher, an author of books like Choose Yourself: Be Happy, Make Millions, Live the Dream and The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth, appeared on Yahoo! Finance to discuss American jobs of the future, which he envisions will involve autoworkers and lawyers switching over to creative work like animation.
Here’s the gist of Altucher’s argument: autoworkers have no future because driverless-cars are coming, and there’ll soon be 90% fewer cars on the road since everybody will carpool, so autoworkers should instead learn creative job skills that he believes require little to no effort and pay lots of money, like animation, website design, and illustration.
Altucher also says that Walmart is replacing its employees with robots, while accountants and lawyers are being replaced by artificial intelligence, so everybody from blue-collar workers to legal professionals should become an artist to protect themselves from the impending technological dystopia.
