My Take:

  1. American workers are being replaced with overseas workers, widgets, or bots.
  2. Automation is accelerating and will soon threaten or way of life.
  3. Society will change either before or after a revolution.
  4. Marriage is on the decline.
  5. I believe that part of preparation for the next decline is getting rid of stuff.
  6. Fight to stay current in a hypercompetitive environment.
  7. America is starting 100,000 fewer business each year than 12 years ago.
  8. Rampant financial stress is the new normal.
  9. Companies can now prosper without hiring many people or increasing wages.
  10. The replacement of truck drivers will be the most visible battleground between automation and humans.
  11. Yuval Harari
  12. Robots do not get depressed.
  13. Most of us could cut hours and still maintain productivity.
  14. Geography is destiny.
  15. 90% of heroin users are white. 50-50 split between men and women.
  16. More Americans receive disability than work in construction.
  17. Trying to forestall progress is a doomed strategy.
  18. Universal Basic Income
  19. Time is the new money.
