The Age of Abundance
AI and robotics are poised to revolutionize the world, ushering in an era of abundance that could fundamentally transform our societies. As humanoid robots continue to evolve, it’s not inconceivable that they could eventually outnumber humans, becoming a ubiquitous presence in every household and workplace. This transformation has the potential to disrupt traditional economic models, rendering the concept of labor and employment as we know it today obsolete. With robots capable of performing almost any task, goods and services will be readily accessible to all, regardless of economic status. As automation increasingly makes physical work optional, it’s probable that a universal basic income will become a necessity to ensure equitable distribution of wealth. The only scarcities in the future will be those deliberately created by humans, as we determine what resources we choose to allocate to each other.
