While many US workers are no stranger to automation recent developments in AI and software engineering now make even supposedly safe white collar jobs under threat. Self driving vehicles stand to disrupt the massive transportation industry in the United States and its unknown if new jobs that are tech related will be created in sufficient quantities to replace existing workers. What will the US do in the future as unemployment continues to rise? Will we go down the road of more government programs? Or will the US attempt to do nothing and watch the economic model revert to serfdom?
