GeekSpeak – How do we survive the Jobs Death Spiral? Join the discussion Saturday January 11th 12pm SLT

With more automation there will be fewer jobs for all of us, and therefore less money for us to buy stuff. This could lead to an economic death spiral; fewer jobs, less money, less buying power.

Until now, we always managed to create more jobs after automation events, but could it be different in the future?  Robots will take over every job we have ever had.  How will humans get their wages?  Will insurance companies prefer to insure hardworking robots instead of lazy, fallible humans?

Or will the coming future of automation make lives easier for humans?  Will we find a way to live with robots who do all the work?  Come and discuss your really lazy future.  Bring your friends!
