The only missing aspect I think we should not ignore is ecology. I do not know how would the increase in digitization, robotics, etc. impact the ecology, but this time around we cannot make the same mistakes as with the first industrial revolution and cause great, and probably irreversible, harm. Like, for example, the addition of lead in fuel for internal combustion engines or using chlorofluorocarbons for refrigeration. Or releasing carbon back into the atmosphere that was sequestered into organic matter eons ago to prepare the atmosphere for our arrival on the face of earth.
