    Some can't work, so they need a basic income.  Some can work a little, but that would subtract from their disability (or unemployment).  We need to have welfare to work programs for those who can (and watch for those who fall through the cracks in the law).  Those with bad backs find that they can't prove pain.  Italy offered a choice of unemployment insurance (monthly) or lump sum if they start a business.  Many successful businesses started this way, and they are now off of public funds.  Giving away money doesn't encourage work.

    I expect: not in my lifetime.

    Not unless revolutionary advances in both robotics and AI occur in my lifetime

    (revolutionary enough to produce autonomous robots able to ECONOMICALLY take over a significant percentage of "regular" jobs SUDDENLY - like, 25% or more).
