Here’s an interesting post from Brad Feld on The Lights in the Tunnel: Automation, Accelerating Technology and the Economy of the Future by Martin Ford.

Ford’s basic premise is as follows:

“At some point in the future – it might be many years or decades from now – machines will be able to do the jobs of a large percentage of the ‘average’ people in our population, and these people will not be able to find new jobs.”

Readers, I invite you to reflect on this thought-provoking question: what happens to these people then?
