Last week I blogged about how technology is replacing retail jobs. Today, Paul Krugman took it a step further on how technology is replacing college eduacted jobs.

The day after the Obama-Bush event, The Times published an article about the growing use of software to perform legal research. Computers, it turns out, can quickly analyze millions of documents, cheaply performing a task that used to require armies of lawyers and paralegals. In this case, then, technological progress is actually reducing the demand for highly educated workers.
