This job is ‘getting old’

In this audio from VoxEU.org David Autor of MIT talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his research on the hollowing out of the occupational distribution in the US and Europe over the past 30 years: high- and low-wage occupations have been expanding rapidly and hiring younger workers, while routine middle-skill occupations have been shrinking and ‘getting old’.

The intelligent design of deteriorating relationships:-

if you think it will last forever, it won't
if you think it won't hurt when the rot set in, it will
if you think you can stop the rot with talk, you can't
if you think you can live with the pain of losing something you value, you can.
