would this cause the downfall of society?
if i could buy a robot, i would make it get a job and earn me money.
then i would have a steady cash flow, so i would buy all my friends and family robots so no-one has to work.
if robots can do all the work - productivity would increase for all jobs meaning i would be payed less.
also the need to pay my robot (and me) would lose our jobs as it (my robot) would be replaced by a company model thats payed for by the boss.
no-one need ever work again. what the hell happens when money becomes worthless?
i think i'll call him robert the robot
