    Interesting conversation! I agree with Professor Taylor that capitalism can never be reformed in the best interest of the masses of people. It’s very goal – profit – requires that labor be exploited. So even if workers are given new types of jobs to replace the jobs being done by technology, workers will still be exploited under capitalism. Thanks for airing such an engaging discussion.
