Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future
William Kyle Spratt's review
Aug 13, 2015
Argues for larger taxes and a guaranteed income globally to combat the displacement of jobs due to technology. A lack of understanding of economics drives the author to this incorrect conclusion that taxes will create prosperity rather than individuals be responsible on acquiring new skills to adjust to the shift in jobs available. Author also cites incorrect statistics on productivity and wages and spends little time on the emergence of new technology and what the world will look like. I suggest he read economics in one lesson and then rewrite his book.
