The Bill Gates “Robot Tax” is as quaint as it is wrong
Kevin Zimmerman

The real problem isn’t about robot taxes. It’s about redistribution of wealth. Manufacturing was one way to redistribute wealth to low-skilled workers. How are we going to redistribute wealth in a society where only high-skilled jobs exist? Is it realistic to expect everyone to be a high-skilled worker?

Many parallels here with Elon Musk’s push for universal basic income.
