WILL AUTOMATING JOBS SAVE MILLIONS OF LIVES?
Over 2 million people per year are killed by air pollution
Over 1 million people are killed each year in auto accidents
Millions more are killed annually in wars securing resources
If we automated jobs, tens of millions of people would not have to drive to and from work daily. The need for resource consumption would drop dramatically globally. With creative thinking and new technology, millions of lives could be saved every year simply from reduced pollution and reduced auto accidents. Right now we could automate the entire financial services/banking industry and postal service with current technology. Automating just these two industries would free up the need for tens of millions of driving/consuming/polluting workers worldwide. [more]

Aren't you guys sick of Wall Street getting $20 million dollar bonuses? Or watching Obama taking $20 million dollar vacations? Or Republicans getting $20 million dollar government contracts?
While watching your fellow Americans getting kicked out of their homes, seeing their children hungry, or others sick because they can't afford health care? [more]
This is something I have been saying since QE1. [more]
