Quote

"In the future, talent, more than capital, will represent the critical factor of production. This will give rise to a job market increasingly segregated into 'low-skill/low-pay' and 'high-skill/high-pay' segments, which in turn will lead to an increase in social tensions."
—Klaus Schwab, founder of the World Economic Forum
