Are Robots Slowly Replacing Human Workers

As per google, the US’s unemployment rate for 2024 is 4.1%, which is pretty good.

What workforce problems are they talking about? India? China? Mexico?

I think they mean the problem of paying people for their labor.

They had a board meeting and someone said, ¨Man, we could make so much more money if we didn’t have to pay those damn employees.¨

These types of corporations would probably lobby for universal income. Nobody works, gets free money from the government, and the 6 people at the head of the corporation make tons of money.

And the CFO, who thought he was part of the crew, just found out he’s not, and he also is getting replaced…by AI.

¨Sorry, Jim. Nothing personal; just business.¨

It actually seems pretty safe. However, I’d rather support a human.

That sounds strange, right? A human driver could be more dangerous than the self-driving car, and that’s who I’m choosing.

It’s an interesting one, isn’t it? The “free money” presumably comes originally from some kind of taxation?

You’d kind of think (“instinctively”?) that it “must” be inflationary, one way or another, in the long run? Yet I believe some heavyweight economists say that it needn’t be, and there’s actually some kind of evidence from somewhere it was tried on a small scale that it wasn’t? (I can’t remember where, now - maybe you know?).

I know that some people well toward both sides of the left/right political spectrum support the idea, in principle, while I think most of those in-between are (like me) highly skeptical? But interesting, for sure!
