Thank you Mark for echoing my proposed solution to job loss due to automation.
“We should have a society that measures progress not just by economic metrics like GDP, but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful,” he said. “We should explore ideas like universal basic income to give everyone a cushion to try new things.”
It’s an idea that has picked up momentum in an age in which increased technological advance, globalization, and automation — especially automation — threaten countless livelihoods, as Zuckerberg noted during his speech Thursday.
“Our generation will have to deal with tens of millions of jobs replaced by automation like self-driving cars and trucks,” he said.
