It was the first book I have read in ages that I was actually sad when I came to the end. Deterrence has never worked on potential criminals. Many more entire industries could have humans completely cut out of the loop and replaced by some tiny fraction of that number of humans in a different field requiring many years of totally different and expensive training. It certainly won't deter crime, because no society has ever been able to punish hard enough to deter crime and there have crime societies that killed petty thieves.
Certainly jobs will be eliminated by automation. Occupations representative of whole industries the world couldn't have afforded to support a hundred years ago. Land is a natural resource, and as with air and water, it should be distributed. Wenn Sie an die Neugier im Menschen und an dessen Fähig glauben, sich ständig aus- und weiterzubilden, dann gibt es auch beim jetzigen technologischen Wandel keinen Grund anzunehmen, dass wir uns nicht wie früher für Neues und bisher Unbekanntes befähigen könnten. It's not a problem we have to solve in 5 years or 10 or we're toast.
Bedauernswert an der Haltung der Pessimisten ist, dass sie einer Kapitulation der Gesellschaft gegenüber dem technologischen Wandel gleicht.

What have these immigrants built? Each of us suffers from some vice or tick or failure. Note: I am very much opposed to Chinese policies in many areas including the ones described above. It's a mutually beneficial exchange, so there's no reason to think anyone is going to cancel it unless they get a better alternative. The land owning class, me, gives no shit about supply.

Culturally, we are teenagers — just a couple generations out of our golden years of innocence. The customers have stopped coming. The idea that people can govern themselves is to me the American Dream. They accept it and cater themselves to it. At a recent global forum in Dubai, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, said some of the economic pain ascribed to globalization was instead due to the rise of robots taking jobs.
Any absolute growth from a small number is a relatively large percentage. If no worries, then you might as well party. It's like cargo cult capitalism - he saw that sometimes successful businesses harm people, and decided that if he just harmed enough people he'd have a successful business. Aus der individuellen, einkommenszentrierten Optik kommt es nämlich darauf an, wie viele andere sich um die noch verbliebene menschliche Arbeitskomponente bewerben und ob man diese Mitbewerber mit der eigenen Qualifikation übertrumpfen kann.
