The number of authors highlighting dangers in their sector is also growing. Sir Michael Barber et al., outline a coming avalanche in education, to name one example. Richard and Daniel Susskind go much further in their scholarly masterpiece:  The future of the professions. Looking beyond sectors, they cut to the heart of the issue and highlight how the historical d

rivers for the creation and maintenance of professions are ripe for disruption; and that this disruption is all too easily achieved.
