An empirical basis for the Systems and Economic Law of "Diminishing Returns" perhaps? Instead of the Theoretical? As for it's Proof, only time will tell... ;)

As for those standing in the unemployment line - hopefully not. Humanity and it's mind is the only anti-entropic principle truly in operation in any System...

I think Gordon's view that technology will not have a significant effect on productivity is dead wrong. I think we need to be a heck of a lot more concerned about what will happen to all those whose jobs will be done better, faster and more cheaply by robots over the next ten years.


Shouldn't technological innovation and therefore economic growth actually accelerate since the internet makes it easier for people to collaborate and share knowledge much more easily and cheaply than in any previous time in history?
