In class we missed one angle of what this is really getting at - robots etc. So since other interactions consequences are covered in other assessment statements, let's let this one focus on robots in our futures. And do let it be noted that robots are here and here to stay, and it won't be long before they are doing a lot more than cutting the lawn.

Jose: Is technology a reason for more inequality or less inequality? Discuss.

Reasons for:

- automation takes jobs away.

- It's easy to blame technology for the increase in inequality; if the top 45 people in the world have as much money as the bottom 50%, and if our "development" is because of technology.... then surely technology must be widening the gap. But maybe not; productivity in the US has gone up in steady rate from before and on through the technological revolution. The issue in the US started in the US around 1975, with the lowering of top tax rate and stagnation of wages...

Reasons against:

- leapfrog technology, for example cell phones for poor Africans

- lower the price of medications
