    Solutions like granting to anyone a basic universal revenue for each one will become something very actual. We voted last year on such a US$ 2.500,- a month in my country. It was refused but will it be in 15 years from now, when there will be no other propspects ? So we will have on one side the robots who work and on the other human beings either not working or having some new jobs ?

    You would need to settle in Switzerland for that and getting Swiss citizenship needs to be there for 12 years..... and take an exam to prove that you are well integrated speakiing and writing one of the 3 official languages....... So a lot of hardship before having your monthly check.....

    Dont they pay those taxes regardless of they have human or robot workers.

    Taxes on human workers is in addition to corporate and capital gains taxes.

    Congressional Dems and Obama had three major tax bills, none of which addressed the fact that those types wealth increases will never see a penny of taxation, that's the way they like it, that's theway they want it.

    If I sneak into Switzerland, walk up to the hiring office of a factory and they have an open job, I can legally work there without any kind of documentation?
