    The Founders are spinning in their graves.

  4. Okay...I rephrase that.

  6. This is not so terribly far from the truth.

    A producer will keep producing no matter the obstacles. The current political climate be damned they will get through it. A hard worker or motivated worker has that ingrained in them.

    Whereas a non-producer (by choice, not current unemployment) has nothing but the power of government programs.

    Perhaps we have three:

    The robot owners (share of growing economic pie = growing; share of contribution to productivity growth = small)
    The servicers of robots and robot owners (share of growing economic pie = stagnant; share of contribution to productivity growth = large)
    The economically irrelevant (share of growing economic pie = falling; share of contribution to productivity growth = N/A)
     
  8. Heck yeah!! What did old Karl Marx himself have to say about that? "The guy with the machines makes the money" [that's not a direct quote but it's what I took away from Marx's writings]. These philosophers are right on the money in my book!
