The situation being faced is worse than whether or not a person will work, it is that there will be no waged human work or very little at any rate.

Here’s why that is so.

Business serves the shareholder to make as much profit as possible for their precious investors, and the board of course. The way they do this is by being more efficient and utilising technology that can save on the cost of waged staff. It is unstoppable that the disappearance of almost every type of waged labour is well underway. The snag in the ointment being that the very businesses who rely on waged human consumption of their goods and services will find an ever decreasing customer base as there is less money in their pockets to spend .

As we write there are governments and ¬†private bankers who still insist that there will be, in the future an increase in available taxed income that can make up the deficiency in profits that they’re¬†experiencing with transatlantic deals where the taxpayer will make up for those lost profits and prevent bankruptcy,

The politicians and private bankers will be forced to create not DEBT out of thin air/fractional reserve but real guaranteed income. One thing is certain the availability of taxed waged income will be causing a logistic nightmare as it almost is now.

Without any doubt robotic intelligence could be taught to understand real economics and not politically biased economics as we have now to ensure that currency did not lose its value and that the system was wholly inclusive for consumers and businesses alike
