In the pro- cess, jobs will be both eliminated and created. For the United States, this is something of a mixed blessing. With the world's most innovative economy, the country is well positioned to exploit (in the best sense) the promise of new technologies and their applications. At the same time, it is painfully clear that American society is ill prepared for this technological transformation because educational opportunity and attainment vary widely and work is the basis for much of a citizen's income, bene ts, and, in many cases, self-esteem.
