Journal Entry

Critical thinking response:

I have been keeping up with digital currency by reading all that I can get my hands on about it. That and AI I believe will have the two biggest impacts on the world economy over the next several years, maybe decades. I read the Wall Street Journal and Time magazine that both come to me via subscriptions and look for any other publications that are around here and have asked family to send articles on some of those also.

I believe the digital currency will open more jobs up but AI will take away more jobs in finance and business over the next few years, but those who know how they work and to work with them, will have limitless job opportunities.

I believe coding and learning to use AI, perhaps to verify things or work with robots and AI in warehouses and other areas, are skills that will be most valuable upon release.
