The Long-Term Jobs Killer Is Not China. It’s Automation.

I think we are destined for a future of political and social instability in the world if we continue to define labor and its compensation as we do now.

We currently don’t have a social understanding for navigating a world where little human labor is required. The resentment of the winners (capital owners) by the losers (jobless masses) may lead to great upheaval, to be harnessed by willing politicians of short-sighted vision.

What will it mean to work and contribute to society in the future of machines?
