The way I see it, countries will just keep expanding unemployment and welfare until it covers everyone, and then no one has a job and they just get rid of money. The problem with that is that some people will fight tooth and nail to resist the increasing tax rate that goes on those who have jobs. Eventually you get to the point where tax is 100% and then there is no difference between a person with a job and one without.

http://www.ibtimes.c...nerable-1587447 As the 106,000 contract workers who lost their Nike jobs in the past year can attest, apparel manufacturers have decided that it’s cheaper to invest in technology than to hire even the world’s lowest-paid workers. The relentless move toward industrial automation is undercutting vulnerable workers around the globe. For years, China and India offered manufacturers a low-wage workforce. Production recently expanded around Asia to countries like Cambodia, Bangladesh and Vietnam as well. But now, automation is allowing manufacturing to stop chasing cheap labor altogether. Automated production machines cut costs and immunize manufacturers from the dangers of a labor shortage. “I think this is going to accelerate,” said Erik Brynjolfsson, professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management. “What we have is a situation where robots and automation do more and more tasks that are being done by low-wage labor in Asia and elsewhere in the world. People involved in repetitive work are very vulnerable to what’s happening.” Even smaller firms in the manufacturing chain can afford to modernize. The robots and computers that now run the plants would have been out of their reach just a few years ago.

Hmm, how fast robots are taking over jobs in the world?

"People" will wake up when machines start taking the jobs of police, lawyers, and doctors. Most of them don't think it will come as fast as it is going to come. They are thinking their replacement needs to come in the form of a big brain. It doesn't. It just needs to come in the form of a portfolio of technologies that reduce their incomes to minimum wage.

^ Tsss. That had to be a joke. Yeah, imagine having your income whittled to minimum wage, only to discover robots took all minimum wage jobs.

More proof. http://robohub.org/m...-cleaning-team/ Clean win for everyone? Poor taste! Conservatives are going to use this to say that poor people •can• compete with machines— they're just too lazy and stupid to try.

Nano coatings will probably clean windows. Not all jobs will be replaced by robots.

I think we need to aim towards making it possible to automate all jobs, which would make money obsolete and get rid of the need for humans to work. Maybe even robots/machines that are capable of advancing science and technology will exist at some point.

Ironically the people who are fighting for $15/hr minimum wage are probably speeding that process up.  The moment robots and drone deliveries are practical and less expensive then a minimum wage worker (including having to pay for the worker's ObamaCare) there are going to be a few million new unemployed workers.


The only thing we ever want is more

Approximately how long would it take to make all our infrastructure smart and automated? As in, a full-on, nation-wide push for automation.


I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.
