Robin Hanson is debating some new guy (to me) who bills himself as a futurist-oriented economist, Martin Ford. They’re mostly debating Robin’s paper on Economic Growth Given Machine Intelligence. The debate began with a post by Ford, followed by a response by Robin, followed by Ford again.
I enjoy Hanson’s response, because he jabs at both sides (techies and economists), as he is often so willing to do.
How might a human-indifferent hard takeoff superintelligence relate to humans economically? You might regard it as a universal hostile takeover of all our atoms.
