It's a good thing Kodiak and 955876 will be dead when the federal law mandating a universal income is passed after the robots have replaced most human labor within the next 100 years.

Some of you think the Wealth of Nations and the Communist Manifesto are the polar documents of modernity. You're wrong. The real document of modernity is Descartes' Discourse. The goal of modernity is not to make money. The goal of modernity is to master and control nature for human benefit and, as Descartes puts it, free us up to do as we wish. If we think dishwashers and agricultural technology afforded us more leisure, we ain't seen nothing yet.

Capitalism vs Socialism is moot.

Automation is rapidly expanding. AI is coming. There will not be enough jobs to go around. Universal income is coming. Even the financial analyst will go by wayside when the algorithms and AI advance far enough.

Work has defined who we are in the West since the collapse of feudalism. That era is on the verge of ending.

Nice Story...lol.. I cant wait to lounge around in my Den and have some AI sucking my schlong all day and have every worry washed away...

I do believe that technology will help and things will get easier.. however AI is not going to take over and do every job..

There will be wars, Plauge or something that fucks us up long before we have a hottie AI taking care of our every need..

and do you really beleive that there will be a world paycheck equal for everyone.. ya ok.. Just look at how just our goverment works.. hell they cant even get the VA right for our vets.. do you think they can run this without corruption..

(1) You're old. You'll be dead. So you'll have to continue to suck your own dick for now. Sorry.
(2) We are probably a 100 years away. If it is longer, whatever. It's coming.
(3) A universal basic income will be necessary if there are not enough jobs to go around, which pervasive automation will likely bring to pass. All low skill jobs are going to go to robots. Have a gander: https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2 ... /88066514/
High skill jobs that involve the use of algorithms will no doubt eventually be run by computer programs.
I did not say all jobs would go away. But enough will go away that there will be people without work.
(4) Most of silicon valley supposes UBI (universal basic income) is going to be necessary. They pimp this primarily as PR to reduce fear about the expansion of automation.
(5) You possibly presume I look upon such an outcome as desirable. I do not. I find it quite scary. It will redefine how we look at ourselves in way not seen since the breakdown of feudalism.

There may be a universal income, but it will be in the form of govt work doing a census on robot workers.

It will be really interesting to see how wealth, in a world of finite resources, is distributed when most jobs are done by robots. I'd imagine the rich and elite will be mostly politicians.

While Lit’s post was an extreme example, it’s not unreasonable.

McDonalds CEO was answering questions in regards to the minimum wage issue and said they have the tech right now to run an entire restaurant with but 1-2 employees. And deliver a better product in the process.

Said the only reason they don’t is the public backlash they’d face after laying off a large % of their workforce.

Like most things, the answer is likely somewhere in the middle.

I worry myself if I can get another 20 years out of my job before I’m deemed unnecessary. I’m not even sure if it’s only 10 years.

OOOOOOORRRRRRR we simply take our business elsewhere, which might partially explain why the likes of ESPN and SI are struggling so badly. Nowhere did anyone call for the govt to regulate that crap off the page.

Yep, free markets at their finest.
I never called for gov regulation. Granted, I'm not following sports organizations financials, but show me how ESPN and SI are struggling. Besides, markets are at their best when they move at a snails pace. Meanwhile, look at the loss of "productivity" at best over the course of the last few dozen decades.

This sort of thing has also been predicted many, many many times before with the advent of almost every new disruptive technology. I'm guilty of it, too, but the economy has continued to create previously un-imagined new industries and jobs.

And we already have a few different types of guaranteed income....there will just be more people receiving it.

Hope so. These issues are above my pay grade. I’m just trying to stash enough away over next 15-20 years so that I can retire comfortably.

13 years for me. I find getting deep knowledge of a system and the business helps keep you around. People coming out of college rarely if ever have deep knowledge and never of a business.

It's naive to think AI and automation are just an extension of the industrial revolution, though. What we are on the verge of is something different in kind, not degree.

Before, we needed humans to run the machines.

We're eventually going merely to be servicing them. The human mind is not going to be necessary for running the damn things, but only making sure they are serviced appropriately.

The fear is not that all or even a majority of jobs will go away. The fear is that a ginormous minority will. If you do not have enough jobs to go around bc machines are doing all the low skilled labor or financial stock picks :D , these people are going to have to be taken care of or there will be a revolt.

This a long ways off, but not really so long.

Might not be as far off as some think or want to believe.

Think if the trucking industry. Why pay a driver that’s forced to take regulated breaks and have a certain amount of down time when you can have a truck that drives all by itself essentially 24/7?

Lots of truckers out there earning decent money. Money their skill set might not be able to replicate if there were no more or far fewer trucking jobs.

Scary stuff.

Also why fast food workers need to be more focused on what they are going to do so they are no longer fast food workers rather than demanding a “living wage” for salt fries and mopping the floors.

The more expensive their labor becomes the sooner companies will replace those jobs with tech.

That same type of thinking and logic has been applied again and again, though. Possibly no phrase has been used more times in a wrong analysis/prediction than "this time it's different".

Spreadsheets put literally dozens of people out of work for every job created. Today, one analyst can do the work 40 did three decades ago. There are many more examples. Technology has always created new opportunities, and freed up the resources to pursue those new ideas such that it has never been a negative or zero sum game.

I'm not really disagreeing with what you're saying, just that I wouldn't be betting my money on "this time it's different".

If you want to take the argument to the extreme, who's to say AI advanced enough to take most jobs is actually going to want to do those jobs, and do them cheaply?

I don't doubt this. But I also think it would lead to the downfall of human kind. What would 95% of the population do all day without any type of work? Look at the inner cities now. It would turn to chaos. I see why Musk is so afraid of AI. It won't be some Terminator like scenario on AI killing humans, it will be bored, unmotivated humans with no drive in life to better themselves either killing one another or eating and drinking themselves to death.
