I’ve enjoyed your writing and appreciate your outside the box thinking and you raise some more interesting ideas in this post.
Taken separately, these ideas seem fairly reasonable. When you combine them, a number of questions come to mind:
- If nobody has a stable job anymore, how will the 99.9% make the money to afford to own excess capacity to sell or buy someone else’s excess capacity?
- Unless you have wealth before all the job disruptions caused by robots and AI, how do you foresee the next generation surviving?
- Without any jobs that actually build tangible things, don’t you end up with a completely closed financial system (with the exception of the 1% who controls more and more of the wealth) where the same money just keeps passing from hand to hand? For example , if everyone writes a book, where does the wealth come from for everyone to sell 100,000 copies of their book? Because that would also require each person to buy 100,000 books. Shouldn’t the one author who sells 100,000 books require that 99,999 authors would sell zero books?
I look forward to hearing your explanation.
