Many experts predict that in coming years, as many of half of all jobs could be replaced by robots and artificial intelligence, leading to widespread technological unemployment. Jay Richards argues that these claims are based more on bad philosophy, not on solid evidence. Moreover, they ignore basic lessons of both history and economics. There is disruption coming, which means that we will need to prepare for work in an age of “smart” machines. But there's no reason to panic.
