Ep.2 - The Economics of Automation & Job Displacement, & Societal Evolution w/ Robin Hanson
Will AI leave us all jobless? How will society change if that happens? Should we be worried? Sebastian talks to Economist and Futurist Robin Hanson to get some perspective on humanity's relationship with automation, and to ask how we might go about improving social institutions to accommodate future changes. Dr Hanson is an Associate Professor of Economics at George Mason University and a Research Associate at the Future of Humanity Institute of Oxford University. He's written a plethora of books about the present and future of society and economics, and despite receiving push-back, continues to expand the boundaries of his chosen fields through a passion for futurism.
