WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION AND ROBOTICS 2 Maintaining Wealth Redistribution in the Age of Computing and Robotics. Topic Issues and Sources The increased adoption of robotic technology in varied sectors of the American economy has caused an increased trend of a disappearance of menial and middle-income jobs. This trend threatens the living standards of middle-class workers. Considering the trend in robotic development recent years, more industries and high-risk production initiatives will adopt robots for their work going into the future. Robots promise to create some economic utopia in the end though it will surely take up most physical and ordinary jobs. Industries are transforming daily as technology grows. Banking and retail businesses have increasingly become fast, creating an expansive digital economy. This amazing transformation brought with it production efficiency in the workplace and increased development of the robotic. The great concern associated with robots is its replacement of workers in different economy sectors. For purposes of this research, our work will rely on the following sources. Manning, A. (2004). We Can Work It Out: The Impact of Technological Change on the Demand for Low Skill Workers. Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 51(5), 581- 608.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
