I've been reading too many futurology forum posts and everyone has the idea that in 2040-2060 most if not all mainstream jobs are going to be automated. Anything from finance to law to engineering to tech to medicine will be completely done by robots and humans need not apply.
The way they envision this future world is completely different. There would be universal income, employment would be optional with 90% of the population not holding a job, higher education no longer being necessary, everyone would have most of their day dedicated to free time and pursuing hobbies, many things becoming free (healthcare, education) and prices on everything would drop dramatically. Basically, the world will no longer be capitalist and instead lean heavily toward communism.
I don't feel like I would enjoy not having a job because after a few years it'll get really boring and repetitive. When I was younger, sometimes we'd get extended summer breaks (4-5 months) and these would get really boring nearing the end since you've already done everything you could do to entertain yourself then again, this was a long time ago so maybe I had fewer interests.
What do you guys think of this?
