The End of Work: Why Your Passion Can Become Your Job
Hardcover – May 7, 2018
Are Globalization and Robots Going to Take Your Job?
Far from it. Thanks to rising prosperity and technological innovation, American jobs aren’t disappearing, they’re getting better. As people get wealthier, more of us are getting to do work that we love.
For centuries, most people have had to grimly soldier on in unfulfilling but necessary work. That’s changing quickly. While technology and trade free Americans from mind-numbing drudgery, prosperity creates markets for all the goods and services that creative people pursuing their passion can dream up. For the first time in history, most people can earn a living doing what they really want to do.
In this eye-opening book, John Tamny explains:
- Why robots won’t take your job but will give you a better one
- Why education is important but overrated
- Why Millennials—believe it or not—will be the richest generation yet
- Why technology and prosperity will allow you to match your work with your passion for a career as personally rewarding as that of a sports star or rock idol
Will your new job be easy? Hardly. Blood, sweat, and tears are still the essential ingredients of success and entrepreneurship. But you’ll have every tool you need to make it happen. After you read this book—and if America stays on its free-market, pro-technology course—it’ll be all up to you.
