The departure point in the "allure effect" is the difference between a cast and a class. Those professions that will move away smartly from the cast, by reinventing themselves, will then share the pie of the class. And the pie has gotten bigger, by the way, professions getting more specialized.

Doctors and lawyers should not be afraid that they have informed clients/patients. It is a challenge. The profession offers not just the knowledge, but also the network. That can be an edge.

My hypothesis, to add a little bit to the discussion, is that those professions that deal with less regulations, prosper more. But do not beat me on this.
