Comment TEB still needs separate rails (Score 1) 176

"The Transit Elevated Bus piloted in China's Hebei province rolls along a designated track, making it similar in some ways to a commuter train or tram -- the key difference, of course, being that it runs on top of the existing roadway without the need to construct a separate overpass" Not exactly true. You still have to construct the rails on which the support columns ride. You can't just ride it on any existing roadways out of the box.

Comment Re:Makework (Score 1) 1145

The key problem is that we are bending toward a world with much less jobs. If we want jobless people to live and the economy to keep working, we need to give them money somehow.

If you start giving money to the jobless people, then they will be jobless forever. How about giving them better education so they can find better jobs instead of relying on the same soon-to-be-obsolete job skills for the rest of their lives? If you are so worried that technological progress is killing some low-skilled, low-paid jobs then you are failing to notice that it creates other, higher-skilled, better-paid jobs. Why don't you leave your phone and computer and go back to the good old technologies of pidgeon-mail, hand writing, and using an abacus to count your money? Computers killed the abacus business, phones killed the pidgeon messaging. Are you really worried about that?
