Un-labor day?

Here is the essential message from Robert Reich on the occasion of Labor Day 2028.

The economic model that predominated through most of the twentieth century was mass production by many, for mass consumption by many.

Technology is changing that.

But the model we’re rushing toward is unlimited production by a handful, for consumption by the few able to afford it.

Check out Reich's blog for some tax policy possibilities to achieve universal minimum income and full unemployment. (Not a typo! Might it happen by 2028?)
