    Here's another thing automation hasn't helped: Financial Markets.

    The promise of computers would be they would make the 'toll gates' most efficient by choosing them better and faster than a human could. In reality, we have the most volatile markets since the post-war era with lots of front-running and HFT Algo bots ginning up prices.

    Man I hate Wasserman. The epitome of a Third Way New Democrat.

    Forbes article says

    And further I think that this strange blend of markets and capitalism that we have generally works to undermine whatever tendencies to increased inequality arise.

    Which is simply not true. The metrics say the exact opposite. Also nowhere in the article does the author attempt to refute Hawking's statement other than giving his asserted opinion without evidence in favor.

    Yeah "consumption possibilities" for people living pay checks to pay checks have increased. They get FB for free, you know.

    Right on. Google and Facebook aren't allowing people to reduce rents to 10% of income expenditure or making doctor visits cost a dollar or lowering the cost of tuition to $500/semester or less. Honestly, the last item is the most absurd. Tuition for higher ed, barring specialty courses involving labs like higher end Chem or Bio courses (you can certainly dissect a frog or conduct acid-base reactions in your own home) ought to be rock bottom.

    Robots are just means of production.
