AMi,,, We enjoyed your tax plan. Now look twenty years ahead. We are going to need a plan to keep the country employed. Lets assume driverless cars and trucks become the norm.

Taxi drivers, half of all truck drivers, and half of all auto workers will need other ways to earn a living.

It's really not fair to expect you to come up with a solution before the problem even exists.

I agree and disagree, was unemployment non existent before automation? By the time 2030 rolls around a lot of factory workers will be retiring anyways. There will be an evolution of career assessment, and there will be changes.

The implementation of advanced robotics might make some jobs obsolete, but that same advancement will open up new career paths in programming, design, maintenance, etc. Universal basic income provides what? How about rethinking education and the

Automation isn't a recent phenomenon. It used to take a very large family to farm 50 acres of land. Today I watched a computer controlled tractor planting 36 rows of corn in a single pass.

Same AMI. Pre-owned :) Automation/AI fascinates me. Lots of potential, tons of misunderstanding.

I'm convinced that automation is spawning geometrically. It's true that the boomers are retiring. That might help this decade's young. But if the projections of autonomous everything are correct, there will have to be some major shifts in the way we

The coal industry, in addition to other economic factors, was decimated by automation. Very few workers are required for efficient mining operations now in general.
