Basic income after automation? That’s not how capitalism works


Re: Errrm

Yes but car manufacturing was putting the horse tack manufactures out of business it was people that were being employed, when agriculture was being mechanised many people were required for work in the factories producing the machines (even then there was massive upheaval and shockwaves through society), with this next wave it is ai's that will be doing the work and humans need not apply

All in all it's a big difference to many previous changes and will have consequences that people need try and predict and make plans for.
