So I've read the n:th alarmist article about how robots will replace some 800 M people before 2030 and so fucking on. It will be an endless summer citizen's wage afternoon until the AI exterminates us and so fucking on.

Tell you why this is not going to happen?

Remember the backhoe armageddon of 1934? When lots of people was put out of work and never returned? Me neither. Because it didn't happen.

Everyone wants to get something for free. But you can't get anything for free. So you use an invention that makes something for half-free and so on.

So what you're saying is that instead of 800M jobs going away, 1.6B jobs are going to get much easier, while perhaps paying less?

In order for jobs to be replaced then the cost of hiring a
worker has to exceed the cost of buying and maintaining
an advanced piece of robotics, which isn't going to happen
by 2030 even if they continue to advance at this rate.
A T800 is not fucking cheap.

Easier, maybe. The wage is a strict union question. Maybe we have to re-assume a lot of things. The post-WW2 economy was founded on the assumption that there would be an constant growth. Then the financial markets got de-regulated and the financial sector grew too large. That was some 40 years ago and the unions haven't still caught up.

And another thing the unions have to catch up is the introduction of computers. I don't recall the name, but there was a french sociologist who in the 70-s warned that computerization would change the work. Back then computers was magic boxes that no one cared about.
