    “Advances in technology are likely to continue to put pressure on workers
    to develop new skills and move from one industry to the next as
    circumstances dictate.”

    This is why smart young people will not have children. If you have to go back to school, and thus be unable to earn an income while retraining, it is sensible to keep yourself as light as possible. This is also way renting might be preferential to owning a home. If you need to relocate to wherever in the world a good paying job can be obtained, it is best not to hold expensive, and heavily mortgaged, illiquid assets like homes.
