The Job Vacuum

I wonder if anyone’s done a comparative study on the jobs both eliminated and created by the steady advancement of technology.  The sector isn’t relevant; be it transportation, agriculture, manufacturing, food service…What matters (or what I’m most curious about) is whether, ultimately, more jobs are being created or lost through technological advancement – or whether there has so far been a measureable equilibrium.

If there has [been equilibrium] I’d be curious to know whether a predictible shift has (or could be) identified based on expected future innovations/advancements.

Note: A job can be “eliminated” by either becoming obsolete or being moved out of the country with the help of new technology.
