From Dave Winer
On a panel on MSNBC last night, Steve Schmidt, a Republican consultant, said the question for American workers wasn’t that jobs were being shipped overseas. That’s last century’s problem. Today’s concern is that automation replacing a lot of workers, and it’s about to accelerate. A lot more Americans are going to be out of work next time around.
Trump didn’t mention it because the smart people in the Republican Party either weren’t advising him, or he wasn’t listening. And Hillary didn’t mention it because it’s true, I’m sure she knows it, but she doesn’t have an answer.
