Will Advances in Technology Create a Jobless Future? | MIT Technology Review
Who Will Own the Robots? - We’re in the midst of a jobs crisis, and rapid advances in AI and other technologies may be one culprit. How can we get better at sharing the wealth that technology creates? // BY MARTIN FORD - The Great Divide: Unequal Societies and What We Can Do About Them BY JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ &! Inequality: What Can Be Done? BY ANTHONY B. ATKINSON &! The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies BY ERIK BRYNJOLFSSON AND ANDREW MCAFEE // &! Paul Krugman - “A lot of what’s happening [in income inequality] is not just the gods of technology telling us what must happen but is in fact [due to] social constructs that could be different.” - gov policy, corporate policy (ie 4-day work week and 6-hour days because productivity and profit margin do allow for that, and more brings diminished returns etc etc but will that go down well with Wall Street?)

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Chickens (HBO) - YouTube
160 million chicken a week. its a commodity business. lowest price. commanded by rootless global conglomerate corporations that evade and avoid taxes and demand subsidies - no stakeholders in local economy, environment, ecology, country. no shared economic interest. listed on Wall Street; objective of profit maximization and creation of shareholder value. With a policy that pits farmers against each other. // And money buys you (Wall Street) career politicians, not representing your constituency (voters, people of America) instead you (Career Politician) bank that cheque from your regular corporate lobby representative.
