Forum for the Future identified key questions regarding the future of work:
What kind of skills will our future workforce need? How might they be different from the skills needed today? How can educational needs and mindsets shift in response?
We also now need to ask, what sort of ‘talent’ will economies need? Where might the precise value in what people can do lie in future? How will this impact pensions and social security?
How will we determine the rights of robots - a new class of workers?
What will be the future of unemployment: will more people choose it, or be in temporary/flexible/freelance employment?
How will team structures change? Will more people be working in teams, or alone?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) units, distant descendants of today’s 3D printers, are capable of producing anything a person can program into them. Just by asking, anyone can have anything they want. People trade energy credits or donate energy to projects that interest them.
See for example HBR on "Computers Create Jobs and Inequality at the Same Time".

In fact, work has nothing to do with wealth or value.
