If anything our technology will look ancient next to what will come forth in the millenium with all truth revealed on the earth and satan bound so that men will not corrupt it or hide it or destroy it for evil design. I just don't see a lot of occupations surviving. My husband is an attorney. He'll be out of a job. Skousen said as much. Regardless I am not worried about people working. There will be so much genealogy and temple work, not to mention missionary work that I'm sure everyone will be actively employed in whatever business they want to do.
I agree and disagree. Skousen actually had a couple interesting paragraphs on the need for attorneys in a "Zion Society" - just obviously very different than the roles attorneys play now. I agree that many occupations will definitely change (the economy in general will be much more efficient when people are honest), but I still think there will be need for the honest talents that I'm sure your husband has accumulated in trying to be a righteous attorney (and the honest talents that others have accumulated and actually enjoy sharing with their fellow men based upon individuals' righteous desires). I'm an accountant and I believe there will still be need for accountants, but I think that the role we will play will be much different (and also I think the work week will be much shorter).
