We're all fallible outside our areas of expertise, even famous heart-surgeons and billionaires. Why many bright celebrities who predict that tech will make work obsolete are foolish. Why many clever pundits who predict that men will come to prefer robots to women are foolish. The only way the government can give some people money is by first taking it from others. It does so by imposing confiscatory rates of taxation and by printing money. Why both activities leave you with less of your own money. Many intelligent and accomplished people who lack all wisdom have been predicting the end of work since 1801; tech advances will put millions out of work. Why they always have been wrong and always will be wrong.
