In Detail

He is the co-author of the best-selling book, 'The Future of the Professions'. Here, he predicts the decline of today's professions and describes the people and systems that will replace them. In an Internet society, we will neither need, nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others, to work as they did in the 20th century. Based on the authors' in-depth research of more than ten professions and illustrated by numerous examples, this book assesses and questions the relevance of the professions in the 21st century. Before joining Oxford, Daniel worked in the British Government, as a policy adviser in the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit, as a policy analyst in the Policy Unit in 10 Downing Street, and as a senior policy adviser in the Cabinet Office. He was a Kennedy Scholar at Harvard University.


Daniel argues that new technologies will not simply augment the work currently done by professionals; it will displace them by doing the same work more productively and efficiently. The positive side is that this will make the economic pie grow. The down side is that our traditional model will no longer be applicable because old and new tasks will be increasingly done by machines.
