If a robot takes your job, should it pay your taxes too?

If a robot takes your job, should it pay your taxes too?

Bill Gates wants to tax robots.

Now, Gates is a fantastically successful businessman. The Microsoft co-founder is worth $85 billion, after all. He’s also a major philanthropist with a keen interest in public policy. But he should be careful about his musings to the media. The world’s richest person can’t just leave live ammo like "Maybe there should be a robot tax" lying around for some opportunistic politician to pick up. Certainly not with Donald Trump as president.

Look, all that has to happen is for America’s cable-news-addict-in-chief to hear someone on Fox & Friends talking about how "Bill Gates said […]

Second Part Artificial Intelligence: The Impact on Employment Automation and Anxiety.

In a later illustration, robotized teller machines (ATMs) may have been relied upon to spell fate for bank employees by assuming control over some of their normal errands, and surely in America their normal number fell. Be that as it may, that decreased the cost of running a bank office, permitting banks to open more branches in light of client request. The quantity of urban bank offices ascended by 43% over a similar period, so the aggregate number of workers expanded. As opposed to wrecking occupations, ATMs changed bank representatives’ work blend, far from routine assignments and towards things […]

Stop robots from stealing our jobs: Your Say

Letter to the editor:

Mark Cuban and Bill Gates are correctly predicting that robots will continue to replace human workers.

This trend will not only have negative effects on job security and employment but also decrease tax revenue for federal and state government. It’s time to consider a “robot tax” on each robot that equals the income taxes lost when a human worker is replaced. Jim Swab; Kalispell, Mont. Facebook comments are edited for clarity and grammar: Automation is either going to lead to permanent high unemployment, or we need to shorten the workweek so more people share the same […]

We Need to Prepare for the 5G Jobs Apocalypse

My taxi driver in San Diego had a plan. He was moving to Laredo to get back into long-distance trucking. He’d work hard for 10 years, save a couple of hundred grand, and retire to Mexico. I did the math: that put him around 2028. He might just make it before all the trucking jobs go away .

At Qualcomm last week, Cristiano Amon, president of Qualcomm CDMA Technologies, extolled the virtues of the upcoming "5G economy," painting a picture of autonomous vehicles, smart cities, and ubiquitous augmented and virtual reality.

Bill Gates: 'Robot tax' could help train human workers for new jobs

Dive Brief:

Governments should tax companies that use robots, using those funds for worker training programs in other employment areas, said Bill Gates, in a recent interview with Quartz .

"You cross the threshold of job replacement of certain activities all sort of at once," Gates said. The idea is that those individuals displaced from work by automation could be redirected or retrained to do jobs that are difficult to automate because they require a human touch, like providing care to the elderly […]
