We've got robots making us coffee, but are we better off? From automation to longer lives, we look at how technology is changing daily life—and the economy—for good and bad.
Good Tech Bad Tech
Does coffee made by a robot taste good? Should robots be taxed? What is immortality investing?
On this episode of The Merrill Lynch Perspectives Podcast, our hosts, Candace Browning, Michael Hartnett and Chris Hyzy, explore the many ways that technology is transforming the economy and our lives—often for the good, sometimes for the bad.
They debate the benefits and costs of greater convenience and more efficiency and consider how society and government might respond as the spread of automation, robotics and other so-called disruptive technologies become more ubiquitous. They conclude by pointing to some interesting opportunities investors might consider as they look toward the world of the future.
