Ben Schiller, “Yes, Robots Really Are Going To Take Your Job And End The American Dream”
Schiller’s article serves largely as a summary for Martin Ford’s 2015 book Rise of the Robots, in which Ford argues that this time ‘really is different’ when it comes to technological automation’s effects on future labor markets. Technological automation looks set to alter higher education and health care, as well as many other areas usually considered human labor-dependent. Schiller and Ford both recommend a basic income guarantee as a protection for humans as we enter a future where there are simply not enough jobs available.
