There is a shift away from producing goods to creating services. Production of goods (e.g. clothing and shoes) declines while the production of services (e.g. fast food and fitness coaching) increase. Direct manufacturers of goods are few.Blue-collar, manual labor jobs (e.g. assembly line and welders) are replaced with professional (e.g. doctor) and technical (e.g. computer analyst) jobs.Transition to a focus on theoretical knowledge over practical know-how. Theoretical knowledge leads to the creation of new, innovative, solutions (e.g. knowledge created by doctors has led to new, effective models of patient care).Increased focus on the implications of new technologies, when and how they should be used, and when and how to control them.
