  16. Where we are going: Education • Increasing education: More and more Americans will be earning college degrees • America has seen approximately straight line growth since 1950 that should continue well into the 21st century • If this continues, over 190M Americans will have a bachelor’s degree by 2050

  19. Summary & Conclusion • TEE provides goods and services that are basic, fundamental and important to the way we all live. “Its Essential” • TEE is as real as the Knowledge Economy but overlooked and taken for granted. • TEE is a structural part of the overall economy, trails GDP and expands/shrinks with growth or recession. • For many Georgian’s TEE, is the economy of last resort. • TEE jobs are domestic jobs, located in the US and cannot be exported unless you export the industry i.e. tomatoes. • While automation may increase productivity in TEE, it will also require and benefit from real life workers. • TEE is full of entrepreneurs and self made people. • TEE is threatened by our aging demographic, upward trends in higher education, the cost of regulation and US Immigration Policy.
