Shift Happens is a slideshow about how economic globalization, demographics, and rapid technological changes are shifting the status quo of our world (h/t FP Passport). TLB has not verified the accuracy of every fact in this presentation, so feel free to doubt it. The creator of the presentation's content, Karl Fisch, does link to his sources on his blog, though
Here are a few of the interesting facts from the slideshow:
- If every job in the United States were sent to China, the Middle Kingdom would still have a shortage of jobs.
- If MySpace were a country, it would be the 11th largest (between Japan and Mexico).
- China will soon be the number one English-speaking country in the world.
- The top 10 in-demand jobs in the United States in 2010 will not have existed in 2004.
