Good question man — not sure at all.
- A lot of of these folks will have to move to cities (which will continue to expand upward and outward). To ease this, we should make cities more affordable for and attractive to them. They can’t just be economic magnets, but social as well.
- Folks who don’t move will need a clearer way to participate in the (currently in US) 4% of land mass (cities) that house 64% of population and generate roughly same % of economic output. Urbanization puts pressure on food supply (e.g. farming) and logistics (e.g. trucking) but that stuff is ripe for automation. Might be a lot of the same soft skills/services described above just provided virtually/remotely.
