by Dean Baker | CounterPunch | The basic story of robots taking our jobs is one of a massive increase in productivity growth. Instead of people driving taxis and trucks, stocking store shelves, and working checkout counters, all this work and more will be dealt with by robots. There are three problems with this story: 1) It has not been happening; 2) No one involved in designing policy expects to happen; 3) It would likely mean more rapid wage growth and improved living standards if it did happen.
