3D printing could help bring jobs back to America - AMA Shift

3D printing could help bring jobs back to America - AMA Shift | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it

News and Opinion with a Management Perspective...

2 Billion Jobs to Disappear by 2030 | World Future Society

2 Billion Jobs to Disappear by 2030 | World Future Society | FutureChronicles | Scoop.it
