We had a fascinating conversation with tech/economy/politics writer, James Pethokoukis about how robots and algorithms are (probably) going to replace the need for a human workforce (at some point). We dig into the weeds about what possible solutions civilization should consider when confronting this sea change: a universal basic income (UBI); negative income tax; or shortening the work week to four days. (And, yeah, we also talked about his time as a Jeopardy champion and got to try and answer his winning final Jeopardy question.)
