This video gives an explanation for how robots and AI may overtake nearly all jobs in the not-so-distant future, a premise which before fell under the process of creative destruction. As menial labor jobs are destroyed, jobs open up to to maintenance and building those robots.
However, Grey brings up the idea — what about when those robots can just build and maintain themselves?
Also here's another interesting article about the same idea.
Some questions I think might be good to think about are:
Is the analogy comparing humans losing their jobs to horses losing their jobs valid?
What can humans do in the future if the demand for humans is so low? Will human populations fall as there is less to do in the world?
Are there positive and negative externalities to humans not having jobs?
Would this lead to a Star Trek-esque society (where people don't have to work because scarcity is a thing of the past so people just do stuff in order to live a more fulfilled life)?
