I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Prof. Temple this past week in Medellin. In the wake of so much technological change and it’s impact our lives, we need to reevaluate what it means to be a human being and how we define our worth. He impressed upon me the need for intergenerational work in order to confront this sea change.

  • Are we prepared for high rates of employment due to increased automation?
  • Are we ready to discuss our relationship to work and its impact on our self-image?
  • Will we continue to measure our value by our jobs or our wealth?


These aren’t new questions but rapid change has made it imperative that we decide who we are and who want to be.
