I tend to look at it this way:
- The quantity of human labor is continually decreasing while production is continually increasing. This process won’t stop.
- This means production is more and more de-coupled of labor.
Conclusion: There is simply no way around finding a new way of distributing production: Laber alone can’t be the measure. Unless we want to risk revolution.
I don’t know if it should be a sort of UBI (here in Switzerland we had a national poll actually on it, but it was discarded. The thought is simply too new and scary), or another mechanism, or just re-distribute via heavier taxation. But I know we better hurry to find appropriate solutions.
I believe there is so much to do for humans, that inspires us, drives us, improves us, that is way more meaningful than many jobs are today. Indeed, the Andrew Yangs question nailed it: Will we create a future as in Star Trek or in Max Max?
