Can anyone guess what having such a large portion of the economy being made up of software means? Think about that for a second, 7.8% of the global economy is software. That has to have serious implications on all aspects of economic thought?
I'm not much of an economist, but I'm guessing this means that the more automation we have the more "traditional" jobs will be replaced by technology? On the other this might also create new jobs, meaning new studies and or specializations will also emerge. If the new and traditional will balance each other out is the real question.
The emergences of technology might also have other beneficial implications in other sectors other than the economy, I think.
