Role of government in self-driving future
Geoff Nesnow

All good points. Specifically related to the the transfer of wealth to companies that prove to be successful (and their investors), I think the first step is leveling the tax playing field. There needs to be international tax agreements that disincentivize tax avoidance/evasion. Until such tax law exists, and perhaps perpetually, we shouldn’t (double) tax corporations for the repatriation of capital if it’s going to be applied to a purpose that creates jobs (R&D, infrastructure, etc.) as opposed to dividend payouts to investors. I think it’s going to be easy for government to regulate the problems self-driving cars present. More challenging perhaps is identifying the new opportunities self-driving cars present and acting on them.
