Meet the replacements.

Automation is the natural response to intrusive regulation. Always will be.

OABTW, do you want fries with that?

    CS: Nice video. Like you said, if the minimum wage is raised, the cost of automation becomes more attractive, freezing out lower skilled workers from even beginning the climb up the economic ladder.

    Here's a robotic bartender:

    And a "3D Printed Pizza":

    It doesn't look too appetizing, but it is only the beginning.

      You're absolutely right, Steve. Every time the Ineptocracy plays the game of building the better regulatory redistribution mousetrap, the Producers build the appropriate better mouse response. Either that or, the Producers simply choose to Go Galt. At least that is what I chose back in '07, and haven't looked back. Matter of fact, it is now a concept that upstanding folks like Karl Denninger, have joined in with reducing ones taxable footprint to as near zero as is within ones comfort zone, and let the elected sociopaths and their appointees within the State/Federal leviathan starve.

      I really do need to make your blog a regular haunt. Was just looking through your work, and damn - great stuff, Steve. Thanks for reintroducing me to MCT with showing up here on the new unfettered Just out of curiosity, I wonder if the kid with the automated bartender intended on purpose to place a BAC tracking device on his creation by the phone APP or, was it was schemed into it by way of grant monies funneled into his college campus?

      Thinking minds do wonder.

      Ps. the babe in the video is way hotter in her native tongue. The dubbed in Kennedy clan "pizzer" crap I posted above just ruins it for me.

      Pps. I still believe the whole charade behind the minimum wage flapdoodle is for upping the benchmark at Public Sector Goonion's collective bargaining table.

        Glad you enjoy MCT, I try to have fun with the project.

        I think you are correct in thinking the public sector unions are pulling the strings regarding the minimum wage increases. Once the minimum wage goes up, the union will point at the unskilled teenagers knocking down $15 / hr at their first or second after school job and say, we represent skilled workers who clearly are more skilled than a burger flipper, so pay up. BTW, the pizza chick is very easy on the eyes, dubbed or un dubbed if you ask me.
