Elon Musk Plugs Universal Basic Income
Elon Musk says a universal basic income is inevitable with the likelihood of technology disrupting the job market and resulting in a steep decline in jobs for everyone. This seems much along the line of what I've written previously about robotics and artificial intelligence taking not just menial jobs, but likely most jobs eventually:
"Musk said that despite the convenience of autonomous cars, the technology will disrupt a huge portion of the global workforce. He thinks that universal basic income is going to be necessary and that we’re going to need it within 20 years of the first fully autonomous car hitting the road."
Not plugging socialism, it just seems to me there won't be any alternative to that short of some sort of final solution where unfortunates who can't support themselves are removed from the picture.
Great minds think alike, huh?
