Income inequality and the value of labor

Income inequality in the United States is now at levels unseen since the late 1920s. If current trends continue, income inequality will soon reach unprecedented—and probably unsustainable—levels.

While many factors contribute to the ongoing trend toward increasing income inequality, is it possible that accelerating technology is the primary force which is relentlessly driving wealth into the hands of the few? If so, how will this trend play out? Is it possible to have a civil society and a vibrant economy in a world where a few wealthy individuals reap nearly all the rewards associated with technological progress?

Where will accelerating technology, job automation, and globalization lead?
