Re: Automation
@Gabriel: I dunno... Here in the US, I've actually looked up data on how tax dollars are spent and what percentage goes to what programs -- to say nothing of Senator Tom Coburn's highlights report of wasteful programs every year. It's pretty galling.

Re: Automation
Judging from the bright minds that I know (yes, hard to believe that I know any) that are entering their college years, the focus is on ... becoming rich. The aspirational role models are the "disrupters" rather than the innovators. It's more than a little depressing looking at it from a distance, but I can't imagine how soul crushing it is for the young ones who buy into this worldview.

Re: Automation
I had a quick look. OpenGov looks the most interesting idea in the portfolio. 

We have something similar for our local taxes here in London. They send out a letter with a pie chart showing this much was spent on social services (child protection, care homes, etc.), this much on libraries, this much on traffic wardens, this much on street cleaning, etc. When it's set out like that, paying taxes is less galling. You could call it a privilege even.

I'm a bit skeptical this can work at a national level -- there are presumably reasons why things are opaque. Large numbers and large bureaucracies make it harder to know what's going on.

Re: Automation
Agree. Which brings us to the other half of the problem (and John’s other big point) ... the lack of innovative and entrepreneurial behaviors in American tech. Where is the leadership, in politics, in government? The US is in a shocking state under the veneer of economic stability.

I'm with John. Disrupt or get disrupted.

I've gotten to the point that I'm tired of eyerolling every time someone kvetches about the loss of jobs. As long as we don't go and hurry up to build a damn robot-ruled dystopia, we'll be fine as businesses -- and the job market -- evolves.

I imagine the Industrial Revolution saw similar bellyaching.
