Erik Brynjolfsson (MIT): Basic Income and 4th Industrial Revolution

This is another talk given last spring before the Swiss vote on Basic Income. Brynjolfsson is the author of The Second Machine Age.

This video isn’t the greatest, because he wasn’t there live – he participated from Boston – and there are a few places where the transmission froze or stuttered. I disagree with him about the timeline and the work side of things – I think people will work regardless, and I think basic income needs to come in sooner than he does – but these are the things we need to talk about.

Again, if you like this, head over to YouTube and give a thumbs up.
