Glad to see you're back. It's been a quiet few days around here.

I needed a break from this nut house. Plus, the Southern Ontario weather is currenty sooooo nice, even I like to be outside - and I HATE to be outside.

Larry Berman, on Canada's BNN, talk Robotics and AI, and their effect on the economy...

The rise of AI and the impact on jobs

Hint : He agrees with me.

Automation is going to be a huge thing in the future. I do think eventually we will need to go to some sort of basic income, but it will be very interesting to see what happens.

Agree.

As Larry Berman says, it may be the only solution.

Who knows what happens. It is all uncharted waters and is very unpredictable.

Some people say the very few mega-rich will own everything and everyone else has nothing.

Others say the government will own all the industry, human work will be unnecessary, and we will live in a socialist paradise.

That won't happen because there would a revolution.

* I believe Industry will continue to be privately owned.
* I also believe world governments will agree to allocate a certain basic income to every person - say $25K USD.
* Companies (Apply, Google, Amazon, IBM) will agree to it because, if people don't have money, who will buy their goods?
* Because a large chunk of jobs will automated (and it will be continually growing), there will be deflationary pressure - which will make goods even more affordable.

Of course, I don't have a crystal ball so, I very well could be wrong but...

Bring on socialism and a work free life...

She probably doesn't talk unless spoken to, has no bodily functions, and wouldn't spend my money.

I'd date her! :)

I wouldn't count on it. Just wait until she gets a union virus.
