A lot of jobs will be replaced by automation in the coming decades, including white-collar jobs. if you are in sales, well you might want to get into data analytics.

AI and technology are going to replace more and more low-skilled workers...especially with the calls from the Left for higher, unjustified wages. What then?

We were originally sold on the idea that the gains would be shared by everyone, and we would work fewer and fewer hours to maintain our standard of living. People would be less afraid of technology if we all shared this aim. Instead, the gains will go straight to the top and leave more and more people behind. This is where Andrew Yang and a few other people have it right with a basic minimum income funded by advances in the efficiency of automation in manufacturing and distribution.

Somehow I knew you’d go in that direction. Soooo before long, the smart and innovative people in this country can work hard and just provide for everyone else huh?

the reason I rarely respond to you is that you add nothing useful to the discussion. I might as well be arguing with a child, but then again children are far more open-minded and receptive to new ideas.

Rarely respond to me? You respond to me almost all of the time even though you’ve had me on ignore since the election.

Don’t get frustrated just because your libbie ideas don’t work in the real world. If you actually knew anything, you’d see they’ve been tried in other countries and failed miserably...and a lot of those countries’ citizens came here.

May be a tough balancing act

This kind of hits home for me, considering this is my industry (automating ####).

There's hundreds of billions of dollars being invested domestically on R&D to identify ways to automate mundane tasks, boost productivity, and answer the labor shortage issue (get back here in a sec). The whole reason this business model works, is because our solutions offer extremely quick ROIs to our clients and the solutions are easy to maintain, scale, etc. Adding additional tax burden to these solutions will hamper the ROI and cause a negative strain on clients making this decision. This is the balancing act I'm referring to.

On the labor shortage piece - how can you justify saying that we need to have firms who have automated their operations, as an answer to the labor shortage, pay more taxes in order to maintain a minimum income? Where exactly is the line drawn here? Tele health, DIY Tax and Accounting Platforms, Online vehicle registration, 3D printing of parts...all of these can be argued as automated services that reduce headcount. We haven't even gotten to the robotics piece of this conversation...

How do you quantify the tax burden? FTEs replaced? Productivity gained / $ invested? This sounds borderline insane (granted I'm biasd b/c I actually work in this industry)

A lot of arbitrary and subjective pillars here to base this proposal off of, all of which would be detrimental to the actual advancement of this technology being implemented at scale. By limiting the returns of these investments, you'll undoubtedly hamper the innovation of these firms by reducing their overall order intake.

If you want to pay people more for their services, pay for the overpriced goods that you know come from the states. If not, keep buying Chinese #### from American companies who are opening their checkbooks for guys like us to come in and remove their labor.

I have always wondered how and when they just take the plunge and send a fleet of these out. It is kind of like the mother bird kicking the fledglings out of the nest, some will fly, others may not.

every detail of these sections of Houston so that the autonomous cars could operate there. We are a long long way away from being able to do that across all of the US, or even every metro area. That has to be done before these are a regular thing, it’ll be decades before I see one on my small to mid size city, and probably longer before they are commonplace.

Just to clarify

We're a long, long way from DOING it across the country (implementing at scale). We're not very far at all from being able to.
