The greatest minds of our time agree that up to 80% of jobs will be replaced by technology, the only question being how soon. Some say 30 years. To compensate for this dramatic loss of jobs, the introduction of a Universal Basic Income has been proposed as a remedy. Using the one-person, one-vote principle of democratic societies, the possibility exists that people would vote for whoever gave them more UBI. Were this premise to prove true, the growth of the amount of UBI would continue until the system would crash and require replacement by an altruistic authoritarian elite group that decides what is in best interest of all. It remains to be seen whether current democratic governments will resist this outcome, or accept it and begin planning for what may be an inevitable consequence. The audience for this book includes university, corporate and government libraries, think-tanks and journalists
