This video from 2012 is quite instructive. Eric Schmidt admits that the biggest problems facing the American job market are automation and globalization. He then basically states, categorically, that Google is 1000% committed to both these forces. His answer to the problem is ludicrously simplistic, “Education”. Really??? What, exactly, are people supposed to be educated to do if automation and globalization DESTROY the demand for labor in the U.S.?
Google is evil, because the people running Google (and who had started/previously run it) are evil. Frankly, Google being out of ideas is the best possible thing that could happen. Google can’t die fast enough.
