There won’t be much work for human beings. Self-driving cars will be commercially available by the end of this decade and will eventually displace human drivers—just as automobiles displaced the horse and buggy—and will eliminate the jobs of taxi, bus, and truck drivers. Drones will take the jobs of postmen and delivery people.
The only solution that I see is a shrinking work week. We may perhaps be
working for 10 to 20 hours a week instead of the 40 for which we do
today. And with the prices of necessities and of what we today consider
luxury goods dropping exponentially, we may not need the entire
population to be working. There is surely a possibility for social
unrest because of this; but we could also create the utopian future we
have long dreamed of, with a large part of humanity focused on
creativity and enlightenment.
