    One simple question…. We automate more, internet retail more, robotically control more, soon to internet teach more (see Khan Academy) — just where are we going to find more jobs for people??

  2. constantnormal says:

    And to follow up Barnnie’s excellent question, if we are no longer able to deliver decent-paying jobs, what does that say about the labor pyramid model that our society is built around?

    Will an ever-larger number of Smericans slide into permanent unemployment/underemployment?

    How do we ever turn that around?

    We can’t do enough for these crooksters, chalk it up to effective lobbying, bread on the water

    All of you are basically saying what we know to be true: that people are becoming less and less critical to daily operations, and more important for innovation and invention. Those operational jobs and tasks that anyone could do, and earn a living doing, are going away, and have been for some time.

    If you’re of average intelligence or less, better be prepared for a career in sales.
