Economics Students Write On Shaping Skills for a New Industrial Revolution – Western News

"Shaping Skills for a New Industrial Revolution," Western News April 20, 2017, suggests that students will need to concentrate on acquiring skills that involve creativity, critical thinking and emotional intelligence.  In a rapidly changing technological world with machines replacing routine-based tasks, they state that individuals must strive to remain irreplaceable.  The article was written by Western Economics students Michelle Ampadu, Anudeep Sultania, Alafiya Shabir, Liam Wicken, Tobi Tayo and Connor Campbell who are members of the student led UWO Collaborative Economics Initiative.
