For well over a hundred years the labor requirements have evolved. Once most people were involved in producing food, now less than 1% are thus employed. Also common were jobs that are no longer necessary, such as candle makers, wheelwrights, coopers (barrels). Now we have occupations that were not even dreamed of even half a century ago, such as web designers. With technological advancements the labor force continues to evolve. So to answer Fabius, yes the world can support full employment, but the mix of industries evolves to meet the changing world. We just need a government that supports free enterprise that will allow the labor force to evolve, instead of stiffeling business startups.
