Technology-driven efficiency has achieved wonderful things. It has brought people in developed countries an astonishingly rich standard of living, and freed most of us from the work of growing the food we eat or making the products we use. Human jobs in the future will be the ones that require emotional labour: currently undervalued and underpaid but invaluable.
