    This looks to me like the total evisceration of what’s left of the middle class.

    Cars with electronic drivers.
    My prediction: By 2060, it will be illegal for humans to drive a car in the USA.

    In the early 70′s I went to work for a gravure pre press union shop in San Francisco making such items as cooper plates and other products that were fast becoming outdated due to new high speed web presses. Our products compared to the upcoming technologies were expensive, took 6 weeks to produce, were labor intensive . The owner decided to buy up similar shops in Calif that were going out of business due to falling demand buying there book of business for pennies on the dollar while keeping his manufacturing line busy 24hrs a day. The business was always profitable since it was based on craftsmen labor with set markups combined with the growing lack of competition it became a huge cash cow.
    The business ran another 15 years before it closed shop.

    Nice graph, interesting work by McKinsey. I’d be even more interesting to see how many of these disruptive technologies would make it on this graph say 10 years hence.
