Hm. “It is starting right now and will only get worse”. Where is it “starting right now”, exactly? The US is at full employment “right now” and businesses are concerned about where their new employees are going to come from. This full employment can’t last, but make hay while the sun shines.I already said above. Social unrest. Fire and blood. It is starting right now and will only get worse. It can be delayed with bread and circuses (food stamps and reality TV) but it can't be held off forever.
If you automate everything, pretty soon there won’t be any customers at all with the jobs necessary to pay for ‘everything’.
