: The type of jobs dont matter, the fact is that we are entering an age where a nation can experience growth in GNP/GDP without experiencing any change in the levels of employment. That is a change for the better, more than likely the amount of jobs will decrease.

Yes. And Gen X, whatever that means, are going into business
by the droves as of a couple of years ago.

: Facts are the phenomena of Jobless Growth cant be countered by dreaming about classical liberalism and ignoring it. If work JUST DOESNT EXIST as it did, it means the theories that idealised it, left or right, state or market, are defunct.

are defunct. This seems to clarify your statement in my

: The real wake up call is from your favourite ideology and to the reality of the matter.

You lost me on that one.
