The Future of Work, Jobs in 2030 will be Different
Michael K. Spencer

A blind spot that everyone has when discussing this subject is employment. Where, everyone asks, is the work going to come from so that we can all obtain the wherewithal to live on?

We must accept that there has to be a decoupling of work and income. The article talks about 60% of the population ‘begging’ for increased UBI. Unless you are forseeing the demise of democracy (which is a possibility) the 60% will be setting the rate of UBI.

This assumes that money will mean anything. Every advance in productivity has resulted in lower costs as the labour value of the inputs has gone down. Automation will complete this process, everything will cost virtually nothing. This, of course, means that capitalism can’t survive.
