Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1476-1478

Would Ms. Macy’s readers accept it if their jobs were lost to robots and precision manufacturing systems? Trade redistributes jobs but automation directly redistributes gains upwards – the gains are fully captured by owners of capital. Would Ms. Macy write a book about “unfettered automation” and CEOs that profit from robots on the assembly line? I suspect not. Why? Because robots are not foreigners, they do not belong to a strange and foreign culture and they cannot be demonized as slave labor.

Globally, the richest 1% now own nearly half of all the world’s wealth. The poorest 50% of the world, by contrast—fully 3 billion people—own less than 1% of its wealth.

To have done anything just for money is to have been truly idle.
