Unlike the much-quoted ‘industrial revolution’, the changes will come so fast, that our society will not be able to adjust its behavior in a natural process of adaptation. This means, there will be losers in this process and we, as a society, need to take over responsibility already now. For me, as a liberal and market-minded person with a social conscience but also a self interest in social peace, it will need a redistribution. So far no one has presented me – as a person thinking liberal in terms of market-economy – a more efficient and less market distorting solution then the idea of basic income yet. But I am open and eager to include alternative approaches in my thoughts as well.”
