WINNING THE WAR ON WAGES:

Is Your Job Creative Enough to Resist Robot Automation? (AMIR MIZROCH, 4/27/15, WSJ)

"Jobs that are considered creative today may not be so tomorrow," according to the report, Creativity versus Robots, written with Nesta, a London-based non-profit research and innovation group. The paper, published last week, delves into the possible effects of automation on the workforce.

The Nesta /Oxford report tries to handicap which occupations are creative enough to avoid near-term automation. Of the  702 occupations categorized in the U.S., 21% ranked as "highly creative,"-offering the most protection against automation. Such jobs included artists, architects, web designers and IT specialists.

And Americans loathe the "creativity" of modern artists and architects.
