Surplus Journalists, New Technologies & Billions of People Needing Accurate Information: What to Do
AbstractToday many journalists are concerned personally with the matter of adequate employment after years of education and sometimes even experience. The demise of the â€œBig Cityâ€ press in most American cities has been joined by new technologies to create a â€œperfect storm of threat AND opportunity. Using some ideas from the economist Josef Schumpeter, and making comparisons with the American academic job market, we consider options both within and outside traditional journalism. It is apparent that journalists with â€œget up and goâ€â€” Schumpeterâ€™s entrepreneursâ€”will find a exciting world in which they should be able to apply themselves. The additional challenge will probably be that entrepreneurship is not a one time event, but an approach to life which may yield a number of job descriptions over the decades of oneâ€™s life.
