Job Creator or Killer?

In Thomas Friedman’s <a class=”ProfileCard-screennameLink u-linkComplex js-nav” href=”https://twitter.com/tomfriedman” data-aria-label-part=””>@<span class=”u-linkComplex-target”>tomfriedman</span></a> latest book entitled Thank You for Being Late “An Optimists Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations” he makes the case that as robots and artificial intelligence replace humans in the workplace there will be greater not less employment opportunities. Labor costs decrease, product costs go down, and demand for products goes up.  The low skilled jobs go away but the medium/high skilled jobs and wages increase. After all, someone has to operate the drones.  I agree with Mr. Friedman. What do you think?
