Detail from The 4th of July by James Howard Kunstler

As the weekly C-Realm Podcast production schedule winds down, KMO invites long-time, repeat guest, James Howard Kunstler back to the program to talk about what has allowed the world economy to levitate in defiance of the laws of economic physics for the last 8 years. KMO asks about the prospect of continued job loss to automation, and JHK says that there's no need to worry about robots stealing your job. Rather, he says, it's time to take an interest in working with mules. They also touch on the US presidential election.
