Why job stealing robots might liberate us from the tedium of work


Your occupation may soon be taken over by robots.

There's no shortage of scary predictions that millions will soon lose their jobs due to automation.

And those predictions can invoke gloomy visions of a future where the rich own the robots, the well-educated have jobs, and the rest of us struggle.

But there's another possibility, according to Peter Frase, editor with Jacobin magazine, which describes itself as " the leading voice of the American left" and author of a new book called Four Futures.

The book mixes Karl Marx with Star Trek to argue that robots aren't necessarily a threat to the regular worker.

The important thing for me is not whether automation is or isn't happening, and not whether it's good or bad, but who reaps the benefits of it? - Peter Frase, author of Four Futures
