Automation will kill 800 million jobs by 2030

Is the age of capitalism and international trade over?
I hope so much for UBI, I got a lot of ideas for projects, but no time or money due to work.
Well, I hope since bots will do all the work(far far future) the corporations will get taxed to hell so people may actually choose to not work and enroll to benefit program willingly. Maybe for once humans will stop being wageslaves, but of course globolhomo would never want that
Good, wagies cope. More work for me.
learn a trade lads. We are all fucked. What they don't factor in is that millions of laborers are being imported when there are literally no more jobs
Who's ready to be permanently dependent on the government?

The economic singularity and success of capitalism will bring forth socialism.

Hope you learned how to repair robots.
800m unemployed means 800m fewer consumers means less demand for robots to build products.
>>1460144(OP)
I manage security officers and deal heavily with the human side of an industry that is full of schleps.

How safe am I for now?
>>1460144(OP)
>kill 800 million jobs
not enough
>>1460144(OP)
This is going to be a serious issue soon, because it's low skilled / uneducated that are out of work. Then they cause crime and just become sore points on the nation.

I write a lot of code for my job. SQL, Python, VBA, C#. I've been asked, and do, write scripts to automate work such as GUI scraping and PowerBI reports to reduce our headcount. We don't need monkeys clicking 20 excel workbooks when I can use Python and VBA.

Then you have self-driving trucks, warehouse management robots... what the fuck are we going to do with all the poorfags then?

No, because those corporations will hold, buy, or legally coerce, the monopoly on AI into their own hands and force people to pay for the service.
Automation is the epitome of capitalism. A factory with barely any workers is a capitalists wet dream.

good u wish ut would kill 2billion by 2025

time for humanity to put on its big boi pants and create the world we want to live in rather than a distopian nightmare
>>1460144(OP)
capitalism in the actual definition of capital-investment, yes, that is DEAD
emphasis on international trade for its own sake, as a tool of world domination scheming, that's over with capitalism (capitalism being the engine for it)
free trade will continue, but it will be 'bottom-up socialist'/'neo-commodity' mode of production. with some elements of neo-feudalism.

megacorps are going to be the new governments but they will be struggling to keep the 'citizens' from just wandering away and outright ignoring them. there will be an explosion of diversity in 'social orders' which are glorified MMO/LARP games. there will probably be a successful 'neo-capitalist' system focused on a totally gameified 'stock market', over completely automated concerns. the more extreme neofeudal orders which are similar.

the only exception to all of this is if the current powers get desperate and totally overboard with repression and we plunge into a true hell-world. but they are putting forward every sign of not even being competent enough to do that.

Good we can buy robots make everything we need in America and end our dependence on China.
>>1460144(OP)
the age of kike hunting has begun
Probably. The world of the future will be darker than we can imagine. A massive skill-less, depressed underclass with nothing to do but consume.
The biggest lie is that the elites wont be replaced by decentralized architecture. Don't let them fool you into thinking its the middle and lower class that will suffer.
industrial revolution killed off 90% of agriculture jobs
>>1460144(OP)
That’s literally the endgame of capitalism you dumbass, capitalism’s endgame is neo-feudalism, not a world where everyone is middle class and working
>>1460144(OP)
Said another way:

Automation will create 2 billion jobs by 2030.
Didn't we already loss million of jobs 40 years ago by the one on the left?
>>1460144(OP)
>citing a poll as a reason why they should convict
fucking clown
>>1460144(OP)
The people pushing this agenda psyop are trying super hard right now to push it as though there is no hope but the reality is that as decentralization continues to thrive we will not have a need for large corporations, banks or wealthy people. You can just kill them all off and not harm society once we reach a specific point. This is the true nature of the the 4rth industrial revolution.

Decentralization is 4rth industrial revolution.

Imagine having a job that could be done by robots
>>1460144(OP)
It has just begun. You think its bad to have your wages undercut by a mexican doing it for $5 an hour or an indian for $2? Robots can do it for 10 cents an hour and thats what they will pay you and me.
That's why europe needs to import joggers and refugees by the millions who can do nothing but menial labor.
Or are they saying politicians are idiots and menial labor will be almost eradicated and the chinks will rule over us all?
>>1460144(OP)
Absolutely nothing bad will happen with millions of people stagnating and unmotivated by the ascent of automation. Nope. Can't think of a single thing. It's not like there's an ancient proverb about this kind of thing: the devil makes work for idle hands.
and 90% of them will be production jobs. aka china
Muh automation is only an issue because our current system seeks to maximize consumption instead of using industrial technology to accelerate our development into space and nuclear power. The real problem, as always, are the lecherous fiends who direct human capital towards being good little slaves and making them money and who are entirely uninterested in the advancement of our species.
The governments will only give UBI to people who take the jab and eat the bugs and live in the pod
Good
>>1460144(OP)
Instead of killing jobs can we just kill the joggers and kikes and chinks and jannies?
>>1460144(OP)
Actually we're going into a mini ice age and that's what's going to kill people, look up the grand solar minimum
>>1460144(OP)
>Is the age of capitalism and international trade over?
this dude just invented fire, we are going to lose our jobs.
this dude just domesticated the horse, we are going to lose our jobs.
this dude just invented farming, we are going to lose our jobs.
...
this dude just invented robots, we are going to lose our jobs.
Branlet faggot, your kind is saying this shit 4ever. Human necesity is infinite, there will always be a shortage of workers. Why do you fucking think people migrates TO the more automated economy not FROM it?
>>1460144(OP)
Automation would basically ensure the death of the family unit
>>1460144(OP)
capitalism ramping up harder than ever if youre smart. You can be a pleib living in poverty or a king with robots doing your work making you money. Those will be the options
>>1460144(OP)
Will never happen. All they can do is write stupid apps that need upgrade every week.

IT faggots make up these stories for stupid normies to look like they possess some secret knowledge and to launder loan money
>>1460144(OP)
Robots and AI don't pay taxes nor do they consume, do they?
>>1460144(OP)
i pumped gas through the pandemic as an "essential serviceman" making a shitty wage, well at least i got a wage still.
>automation strips hundreds of millions from their job
i pump
>>1460144(OP)
Who will repair our hydro, nuclear and other electricity plants?
Robots?
People forget about basics all the time.
>>1460144(OP)
I will sit on unemployment benefits then, sweet!

Pina coladas on me!
Why are we importing millions of immigrants then?
>>1460144(OP)
How do I invest in this
>>1460144(OP)
Yes. The age of technofeudalism is upon us.
>>1460144(OP)
Because everyone will be dead from the vaccine, so someone has to do the job for the elite. Robots won't ask for 15$ minimum wage.
>>1460144(OP)
>everything will kill everything by year numerical value
Jewish garbage, all of it
hopefully ir kills all the jobs so that we can go back to inventing our own jobs.
No, it won’t. Moore’s law is dead.
>>1460144(OP)
Ridiculous I’ve been hearing this nonsense for 20yrs while we see staggering growth in densely populated places where labor is cheap like China. It’s not automation it’s global displacement and robots are too expensive and not very functional for many tasks.
>>1460144(OP)
I used to work on construction sites and now I started working with robots and PLCs.

My tip: get a trade / a job at construction. Only jobs that require zero thinking and the very same repetitive task 8 hours straight will be replaced, including office jobs (these will actually be faster and easier replaced than physical drone jobs).

You can't automate fat Joe the plumber crawling in your ikea kitchen and doing silly stuff on your basement, or someone trying to figure out your fucked up car.
>>1460144(OP)
Automation will create 3 jobs for every job that it kills. Common people will be able to produce quality products in their backyards. It will be accessible.
The only sad part, is that automation is bullshit. It's not real, at least not for the next 100 or 150 years.

>noooo but automation is taking all our jeeebs

Yes of course, but the "automated robots" are called Chinese people. And now that Biden won, expect a lot more "automation"
>>1460144(OP)
If automation ever occurred and wasn't just a cliche, first thing it would happen is that producing products will not be a thing for corporations.
Just like your smartphone in your pocket has the processing power that required an entire room of computers 30 years ago, with automation, you can design and assemble things you can sell in a small room.

Automation would create jobs. If it was real.

A big giveaway that automation is not real is that things aren't getting cheaper. Productivity per capita isn't increasing, hence things are getting expensive. And you are losing your jobs not to machines, but to chinese people. But you do have to pay chinese workers, but since your country's productivity is going down, your currency is worth less to the Chinese, and you find it harder to afford things. Including electronics, food, even buildings.

This whole automation thing is yet another lie, the perfect excuse for socialist to trick you into socialism, or "UBI" or "Great reset". All ways for you to bow down to some power greedy buffoon who won't ever have the capacity to know how to run the economy, will just take your wealth for himself, and never create the utopia they promise.
>>1460144(OP)
What would people even do with their lives? What would the automation even produce besides the bear necesities for life? Who would buy anything that is produced? Would the market solely consist of those already with the capital to purchase robots and trade amongst themselves? Would snoyboys still buy funkopops? Most Sub 110 dumbos need to work to live. I predict either depression will hit 100% (a new suicide class), or the changes won't be as signifigant as one would predict.
>>1460144(OP)
The whole centralization cliche wouldn't be possible without a complete take over of communications.

For example society is "okey" with exchanging REAL FOOD for some mass production shit because they are totally ignorant to the side effects of consuming shit.

Mass production is lowering quality of lifes and big corporations use their grip over the media to hide this and brainwash consumers.

Going full Ted Kazynsky on their ass is our only hope.
Report by what? Is it legitimate organization or Breitbart?
Neet life here we come

Wage slaves will tell you why this is a bad thing
>>1460144(OP)
>ai taking jobs
>we still need more immigrants to do the jobs tho!

i hate jews

looking forward to a bubblegum crisis dystopia
who the hell buys the product if no one has money?
>>1460144(OP)
Buy enough land to do a homestead big enough for you, your wife and >3 children.

I've been thinking of all the ways to get as much money before automation hits my job hard (I'm a 3D generalist freelancer) while improving my skillset so I can stay relevant for a longer time. But I still think buying land and going for a homestead is the way to go instead of sculpting 3d printable miniatures and collectibles for manchildren.
tfw essential worker
tfw someone has to fix the machines
Hardly. We will just legalize prostitution and sex work so all the out of work baristas can generate an income.
>>1460144(OP)
awesome, lets be sure to import more unskilled low IQ welfare joggers, surely this will help us when all of the functions they perform become obsolete
>>1460144(OP)
I take great pleasure in making software to aide in the rise of automation.
