This assumes the world will continue with the values, resources and organization we currently have. As resources become more scarce, climate deteriorates and transportation becomes more expensive, the charm of “productivity&rdquo ;, as in a single giant robotic factory grinding out megatons of junk to be fed into a robotic international distribution network to generate purposeless superwealth for a very few, will lose its charm. Much more local supply chains will likely supply human needs from a limited but sufficient resource pool and local human talent base. Robots will no more replace humans in this scenario than a bank of spinning prayer wheels could replace a parish priest.
