Christopher Griffith Posted over 2 years ago Is America past its prime? DISCUSS WITH Robert Gordon and Erik Brynjolfsson in a LIVE DEBATE, Thursday at 4pm Eastern. While it is true that in many fields, such as the previously mentioned education, there is great room for innovation and integration of technology, I have to wonder if there is not perhaps a gap between the possible and the likely. Although this is admittedly conjecture, as I haven't done a lengthy and large scale comparison, isn't it true, at least on average, that the jobs that fit within the same category as the also aforementioned ad click optimization will ultimately offer better pay? After all, there is immediate demand and funding for them. I don't mean to imply that every person bases their job decisions purely off pay or the like, as I certainly don't believe that to be the case. However, I am rather curious as to your opinions on it as an overall factor creating a brain drain of sorts away from more sweeping innovations.
