Submission + - Recession, Tech Kill Middle-Class Jobs (manufacturing.net)

Un pobre guey writes: "To understand the impact technology is having on middle-class jobs in developed countries, the AP analyzed employment data from 20 countries; tracked changes in hiring by industry, pay and task; compared job losses and gains during recessions and expansions over the past four decades; and interviewed economists, technology experts, robot manufacturers, software developers, entrepreneurs and people in the labor force who ranged from CEOs to the unemployed." In the comments, the usual bad-government-is-at-fault and don't-worry-it's-like-the-Industrial-Revolution memes are dutifully repeated. But what if this time it's different? What if delegating everything to machines is a radical and fundamental new change in the course of human history?
