The Futility of (Narrow) Speculation About Machines and Jobs

As a technocrat, I can understand and take criticism, but giving a long lecture about how “nobody knows anything” isn't very helpful now is it? Yes, predicting the future is hard, good job figuring that out genius, but citing all the millions of potential possibilities that could occur should not invalidate the logical inferences we make based on statistical data. Jobs are being automated faster than they can be created, thats a fact for now and it makes sense to speculate and plan on what the consequences of that trend will be instead of waving our hands in the air saying “shit we dont know”.
