After tuning into this episode with the fascinating back-and-forth between Ira Wolfe, Gad Levanon, and Chris Borick, here are ten eye-opening takeaways about the future of work, AI, jobs, the economy and the 2024 election.

  1. The job market’s super tight and there aren't enough new workers coming in – so, what’s that going to mean for our paychecks and work life down the road? 

  2. AI is taking over jobs quicker than ever, and it’s not just cashiers and assembly line workers feeling the heat—white-collar pros, watch out too! 

  3. The rise of AI could mean even folks with fancy degrees might find themselves struggling to keep up in the job market if they're not careful. 

  4. Everyone’s trying to figure out how to deal with all the new AI tech stuff without causing a mess, especially in jobs and schools

  5. The job shifts that AI is causing could mix up who votes for whom, making for some unexpected political mash-ups. 

  6. The image of which political party is ‘for the people’ and which is ‘for the elite’ is getting a complete makeover, and that’s changing game plans across battleground states like Pennsylvania.

  7. Depending on where you live, you might see the economy totally differently. Some places are booming, while others feel like they're on a never-ending downslide. 

  8. With all this AI-generated fake news, it’s getting trickier to figure out what to believe, and that’s a big deal for anyone trying to take the temperature of public opinion. 

  9. Even though the US economy looks like it’s on fire with growth, it’s not as simple as good news equals happy voters—there’s a lot more going on beneath the surface. 

The chat on the podcast drives home the point that we need to live the future on a swivel, being able to go with the flow, constantly learning new stuff, and not being constrained by the past.
