    Will the advancement of automation on the road and in the factories create more demand for (specifically electrical/mechanical engineers) or less?

    Whether due to China's ability to produce cheap engineers and or AI becoming advanced enough to take over that occupation field.

    So you are saying it will create an increase in demand? (Country of origin aside)

    Technology has always created more jobs than it has rendered redundant. Its just the timing issues that can cause the problem.

    The main problem is inequality. Look at the number of people living in third world countries. They would all like an Iphone or a Jaguar. To sip a Jack Daniels on their veranda.

    If their lifestyle was on a par with ours their would be a huge market for our goods and the corporations would not be able to play off one set of workers against another.

    In the past, technology has created more jobs than it rendered redundant. But, AI might be a game changer. In the past, technology was useful, but brainless. So, even dumb humans could find work. But, what will dumb humans do in the future when machines are smarter than they are?

    Nice try, key words " i can't even afford a house" nothing in there to suggest i can not support my family.

    I was trying to provoke a thoughtful and hopefully informed discussion about our future as a working nation, if you intent is to trigger
    then i would ask that you trot off to seek the keyboard pissing match you so desire.

    Would you care to elaborate? I do not fully understand your statement.
