In the information economy, zero sum gain is the ideal outcome for those who are interested in capitalizing the given opportunities. ... Regardless of the pseudo-positive news, most of the low to middle tier jobs are not returning to the U.S. For the time being, the opportunities are fewer in number and the pay is certainly much more modest than before.

Thoughts from the Compass Desk
Those who innovate, usually have a challenging time of surviving. If the innovation becomes relevant, their chances of thriving increases. Those who can't innovate, will imitate while waiting for a new opportunity.

If the imitators are able to maintain their peak performance, then they will have a fighting chance to survive.

Thriving in the information economy is about transferring innovative ideas to something that people can connect to. Are you doing it?
