Between 2025 and 2040, robots, AI, and other forms of automation may end up eliminating 30% to 70% of all jobs. Makers All is a framework for confronting this potential catastrophe and turn it into an opportunity to build a more just and abundant world for all.
And if it turns out that robots and AI don’t threaten most jobs until far futher in the future or never do? Makers All will still pay off politically and economically, helping to ensure that as robotics and AI become ubiquitous, communities from Harlem to Harlan County benefit.
In this blog, I’m going to unpack these ideas and explore the nuts & bolts of turning Makers All into a reality.
About me: my name is Anders Schneiderman, and I’m a sociologist turned coder / software project manager. I’ve spent the last few decades doing tech work for corporations, labor unions, other nonprofits, and government as well as monkeying around with grassroots economic policy.
