GW, yours is the most important point made on this subject. There has to come a day when the number of people working and actually earning money is no longer enough to support the money makers life style. What happens to all of those people that can't retrain? equally important how many doctors etc who can't (YET) be replaced do we need, ie. are there enough places in "quality" professions for the multitude that perhaps can be retrained? I think there needs to be a total re-write of the rules of economic engagement lest we have 60-80% of the population starving without a roof over their head and no medical. That by the way is the stuff revolutions are made of. We have to remember that desperate people take desperate measures. Another one of my favourite sayings is "There is no peace possible without social justice"

Thanks for the reply etmax. I agree.

I just ran across another article on the subject:

http://www.pddnet.com/blogs/2012/09/how-lose-your-job-robot?et_cid=2875183&et_rid=372538905&linkid=http%3a%2f%2fwww.pddnet.com%2fblogs%2f2012%2f09%2fhow-lose-your-job-robot

and I sent him an email too.

Maybe people are beginning to talk about this.

Good point, Greg. Manual labor robots are coming, just as ATMs were coming 20 years ago. An engineer from Friendly Robotics, which was an early developer of lawn-mowing robots, said he believes robotic lawn mowers will be as common one day as garage door openers are today.
