Marketplace does Robots and Jobs

In this blog series for Marketplace.org, David Brancaccio is talking about how robots are displacing jobs in the U.S., and also how they are generating new human jobs. He is also traveling cross-country while interacting with no humans, to demonstration the level of automation we have now available.  The series is a mixed bag so far, as the idea of lowering one’s gaze even during social interactions seems irrelevant to the real questions surrounding how robots will integrate into and change society.  Nevertheless the series is worth a look for some of its high points.
