Well if robots take over all our work, then we'll need to have a system like star trek where there is no money anymore, and everyone has everything they need.

But i suspect the very greedy will not go for this, as they like to use their position over others, flaunting it over others, and using their position to lord it over others.

Well, if my companies IT department remains as inept as it is, then I don't have to worry about them making a working robot more complicated than Mr. Coffee.

The most prolific job for males in USA is "driver".  Self driving cars and trucks are slated for wide spread delployment in around 5 years.  Where do all those displaced drivers go to work then?

spanz How is this a question? We literally are seeing this happen with coal and factory jobs... after telling all other groups complaining of economic stagnation, that they were lazy and how they "pulled themselves up from the bootstraps", they will suffer economic demise due to a lack of opportunity with their applicable skills. They'll now claim to be "forgotten" and vote for somebody who promises will bring back the industry, because liberal restrictions are the problem even though driving jobs they will continue to dwindle until obsolete due to alternatives and automation.

I always bring up the 'car trapped in front of semi/next to SUV has to decide whether or not to plow down figure stepping onto freeway' but, the true problem is: Your automated car is not going to drive in a Michigan winter.

spanz I'm not sure self driving cars will ever make a real dent in anything. They are already working on and testing drones to do the job. So we may see the age of the jetsons before we see cars like kitt from knight rider.

dragon91 I saw the article about amazon having huge blimps at high altitudes acting as a floating warehouse. I thought the feds said no way due to potential security issues.

spanz Good question.  The Government should be planning for this but as you can tell we are distracted by a million other things when the reason the middle class is dying to automation.
