To figure this stuff out, we gotta jump ahead to the endgame. The ultimate capitalist dream has been realized. Robots produce absolutely everything: food, clothing, and housing. And all the robots are owned by Scrooge McDuck, because he drove everyone else out of business with his superior robots.
McDuck is now fabulously wealthy and doesn't technically need to employ anyone. The populace is hungry, of course, but they don't have anything to offer McDuck in return... or do they? I've seen this scenario play out dozens of times in simulations. A single entity controls the resources needed for survival, and the people have too much time on their hands. The results are rarely pretty.
