Summary/Abstract: This article reviews and advances existing literature concerning disruptive technologies that may bring about jobless growth and enduring mass unemployment. Using and replicating data from Bureau of Labor Statistics, Dell/Intel, Haver Analytics, The Heritage Foundation, McKinsey Global Institute, Statista, U.S. Department of Labor, and World Economic Forum, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the potential for task automation in various occupations, forecast ratio of human/machine working hours in 2019 and 2022 (by task type), and labor productivity aided by technological advances.
