There will be a need for technicians to repair / maintain those robots.

Yes, but there will only need to be 1 technician per 100 or several hundred robots.

And the technicians receive much better pay than those jobs which the robots replaced.

Yep, but what about the 100 people who were unemployed? The technicians would have to pay a lot in taxes to feed and house those who lose that round of musical chairs and find there is no longer any place for them in the new economy.

Unless they get an offer they can't refuse. Choose - starve in a homeless encampment, or get fed really well for a few days and then step into a little room. Some gas comes in and you just go to sleep and never need food or shelter or housing again.

Hey now... that wasn't supposed to be made public until 2035! You're in big trouble now! (* SNICKER *)

You haven’t read The Giver.  It’s a chilling middle school book about a solution to fix the elderly population problem.

The waterfront property in Florida I was referring to was swamp land about 1 foot under water! (* GRIN *)

FWIW

I thought all waterfront property in Florida was swamp. Although with rising sea levels, soon the entire state will be a swamp again.

There are over 300 lakes within 15 miles of where I was raised. And then you have both the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast and the Gulf of Mexico on the West Coast. Not to mention the St. John's river which flows from the southern tip of Florida all the way up to just south of Jacksonville. And then there are plenty of other rivers and natural springs as well.

But there is a lot of swamp land out there too.

As for the rising sea levels... (* LOL *) also acclaimed by the same folks who are pushing for you to get the vaccination too!

I don’t want swampland but I might buy a bridge.

>>> Working at home has also made a lot of people re-think the whole commute and rat race, and now that some management types who cling to the traditional ways things have been done are starting to order people back to the office, those who have re-balanced work and life are instead polishing up their resume's and going elsewhere. <<<

Particularly true in the tech industry, in which my older son works.
