There is a lot of heated rhetoric coming out of both sides of the aisle about the ills of income inequality.
Unfortunately, automation risk is the number one issue facing American workers and the United States Economy.
In the next 2-3 years, there will be a lot of money allocated to buying robots instead of hiring workers and when those jobs are gone. They are gone for good. Everyone will understand that those jobs haven’t simply moved offshore.
Obviously, makerspace development is the best strategy for dealing with income inequality because it provides a framework for building small and micro-businesses.
For example, if a creative is laid off then they can simply concentrate more fully on their small or micro-business or develop other options (assuming there is a makerspace in the area).
Long-Term, America needs an investment plan not another tax plan that is calculated to win votes. One that benefits small and micro-businesses.
