Finland to pay unemployed basic income of $587 per month

No one said on this thread that computers increase unemployment. No. I was merely pointing out that your notion that robots will take away all jobs is the same as feared by vast groups of people in the pre computer age: They were going to take away all jobs and what would we do ?


Computerisation and robotics self evidently takes away jobs and no one has ever said they will take away all jobs, you can always give people jobs.

Again I cannot see what you are arguing here, it makes little sense.

There has been a proliferation of low paid poor quality work in the Western world that is undeniable, this is replacing what was usually well paid skilled work or white collar work that is now down by computers and robots.
