Over the last couple of weeks, the “idea” that machines will ‘take all our jobs’ have bubbled up in all kinds of media. This little video http://youtu.be/7Pq-S557XQU aim to fuel that notion.
I did find the above video entertaining, but I just can’t see that the problem lies in jobs or automation. Robots we can regulate. Isn’t the problem about consumption, capitalism, growth and natural resources? We can’t just expect humans to consume in the same pace as machines can produce.
