From the link: "4. The Affordable Care Act will create lots of jobs. Due to "Obamacare," 40 million-plus more Americans, as well as the 11 million people currently in the U.S. illegally, will have access to health care. Few experts predict that there will be an accompanying increase in doctors, nurses, MRI machines and operating rooms. On the contrary, many doctors are quitting and fewer people are becoming MDs because of the low reimbursements and heavy paperwork, which will likely increase further. Career implications? Kaiser Permanente, the nation's largest HMO, a nonprofit/for-profit amalgam, is a major beneficiary of Obamacare and jobs there should be plentiful. Care will continue to be downscaled: More physical therapy will be done by physical therapy assistants. Same for occupational therapy. More MD work will be done by physician assistants and nurse practitioners, anesthesiology by nurse anesthetists. The nursing shortage will be addressed by hiring more RNs with just a two-year degree." This outcome was not at all predictable and entirely unforeseeable ha ha ha!

More from the link: "8. America will tilt left. America is accelerating its antipathy toward capitalism and corporations and its support for nonprofit and government initiatives. The majority of the public is willing to further tax the rich and add more regulatory burdens on corporations. President Obama's reelection and the Republicans' fears of skewing too far right should allow Keynesian government expansionist policies to trump deficit reduction. Thus the government's percentage of GDP should grow in 2013 and beyond. Career implication: Job growth should be best in the government sector. Bonus: Government jobs are the most likely to provide job security and full benefits." The outcome of this not at all predictable and entirely unforeseeable ha ha ha! except maybe I should buy a trillion dollar platinum coin so I can afford a loaf of bread in 10 years.

More more from the link: "14. Un- and underemployment will keep rising. There's a perfect storm for increased unemployment: returning vets, baby boomers who can't afford to retire, 11 million illegal immigrants now eligible for legal employment, slowed hiring by government, a sluggish economy here and worldwide, relative strength in China, and increased workplace regulation and payroll costs of hiring Americans (e.g. Obamacare, paid family leave, workers comp)." Oh I guess this outcome is completely predictable and entirely foreseeable ha ha ha!
