According to Ford: the threat of unemployment in the future

It is hoped that the Government would consider the idea to boost workflow efficiency by introducing tax relief on human labor. As is the case with the tax credit for depletion for oil and natural gas, it can be an annual tax credit, determines the value of a unit of energy resources. "In fact this is the consumption of natural resources", - said the company Mineral Web. Many people feel old age, if their stock of vitality charged against the order of the hard work.

In his fascinating book on the modern economy, "Rise of the robots: technology and the threat of unemployment in the future," the engineer and entrepreneur Martin Ford explains how to Robots and information technology will be able to replace both office and production workers . It is this very trend contributed to the emergence of so-called new standards in the US - a frighteningly low level of labor force participation (62%) and increasing unemployment (10%).

Ford emphasizes that the robots are able to work faster and longer, while making a lot less errors than humans. Armed with artificial intelligence, complex algorithms and access to large databases, the robots are able to replace workers in areas such as the right (data mining), Finance (high frequency trading), здравоохранение (supercomputer IBM Watson ), образование, science and business. Despite the fact that you have not yet possible to shake hands like a human robot, at the moment автоматические system involved in virtually every sphere of human activity.

Thus, Ford argues that the Americans would be extremely difficult to remain competitive in the labor market, partly because of the повсеместного the introduction of robotics , as well as due to the constant influx of cheap foreign labor.

Thus, the development of robotics in general - is a good trend, but, as noted by Ford, society must understand the importance of the availability of decent work for the middle class. In other words, the goal is not to slow down the process of technology development and the introduction of robots, and to stimulate entrepreneurs to build your business so that people have the opportunity to work side by side with the machines, rather than compete with them.

Ford argues that the problem of income inequality can only get worse because of the robot, as the income from the production will only receive Business owners and investors . After all, robots do not buy the car - they are machines. They do not need food, medical care and other necessary things for people. Ultimately, robotics could become a big problem for the economy, stimulated consumption.
