First off, here's the link. http://qz.com/403628/autonomous-cars-will-destroy-millions-of-jobs-and-reshape-the-economy-by-2025/
I want to see how you guys and gals reacted to the article. The most curious sections are "The Future" paragraph and the section where the author talks about major car mfg companies going bankrupt. I honestly do not think that the automobile and public transport mfg machines across the globe will shut down, at least at first. There are so many fucking people who make a living off of cars and the aftermarket parts industries that it would take much, much longer than a couple decades for them to shut down.
Personally, I love driving. I own a beautifully clean '87 Accord Lxi. It's a manual and an absolute blast to drive (even though it's a little 4 banger), with a 1" drop on Bilsteins and H&R lowering springs. It's a manual, as all of my cars have been. I don't think, even if it was financially cheaper in the long run, that I would convert over to self-driving cars. I'm perfectly capable of driving and doing it well. I enjoy the experience of getting from A to B.
What do you think about this future the author talks about? Would you get a self-driving car? Why?
