Sentence to ponder

"Society will reject capitalism once automation nears 100%."

—reddit thread on research milestones

It's easy to appreciate that in post-material society in which robots self-replicate and do all the work, there will be little use for capital markets in common material goods.

But won't there always be a market in rare goods?

As well as in research and the arts? ... at least until AI can staff the research labs and produce the entertainment for us--but at that point won't humans be obsolescent anyway?
