I am not convinced that most of the fundamentals will change. Working hard, smart and long will always be useful. As technology plays a bigger part in our lives, working smart will merely become more important.
Who will gain more traction in the digital world - the person making 200 cold calls a day or the person who gets in front of millions online? The answer is obvious.
Likewise, investing money has always beaten saving long-term, as this graph from Quora shows:
Yet with interest rates likely to stay relatively low for years, that gap could just increase. Historically, the S&P500 has done 6.5%-7% above inflation long-term, and savings accounts 2% above inflation. I think that will change, and the gap is likely to widen long-term.
So, in essence, the same trends are likely to accelerate. That means any skills related to the online world, and investing, will become more valuable.
