Robots May Pay Taxes Under European Proposals

This article mirrors the argument I made in 2010. That is, manufacturers need to pay taxes for the robots they use so we can have a sustainable welfare in the future, when more jobs will be replaced by robots and other trends in automation.

Robots in Europe may soon be given legal rights and considered “electronic persons,” following a draft report from the European Parliament that aims to address the rise of automated workers.

Under the plans, bosses would be required to pay social security on their robot workers’ behalf, as well as adhere to new taxation rules and legal liability frameworks.

Here is a list of related articles posted in my blog.
