Calm down; robots won't take every job

Here's a story from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis about whether all of our jobs will soon be performed by robots.

The article by Scott A. Wolla notes that we've had anxiety about technology for centuries. And despite massive technological changes, the world still needs humans to do things.

"Productivity-enhancing technology has changed the economy in dramatic ways over the past two centuries, and it has not made human labor obsolete," the article concludes.

So stop worrying, and if you think your job or field is ripe for a robotic takeover, get the training and education to do something else.

Independent Journalism

I've been a reporter, writer and editor for 37 years. I'm dedicated to honest, fair and hard-hitting reporting. I'm not conservative or liberal, but am just a reporter who tries to get to the truth at any given point in time. I don't believe in pulling punches or being a lap dog because that serves no one. A free and aggressive press is essential to human liberty. That's why the Founding Fathers put a free press in the Constitution. So on this site you'll get a variety of news, fearless opinion, analysis, humor, satire and commentary. It's kind of like a free-for-all. My motto is "Without fear and without favor."  But good journalism takes time and money, so I hope you will contribute what you can to these efforts by clicking on the "Donate" button above. I could use your help. Thanks, Dennis Domrzalski.
