Very briefly: Tom Usher on Dani Rodrik's take on Capital in the Twenty-First Century

"... the return to capital, r, may well start to decline if the economy becomes too rich in capital relative to labor ...."

Source: Dani Rodrik explains why Capital in the Twenty-First Century has become so successful in the US. - Project Syndicate.

Dani Rodrik is one smart fellow. However, I say not "may well" but will. Labor (workers; the employed) must have the incomes to pay for the goods and services creating the return. This is why socialism of a more advanced sort is inevitable in the quickly advancing Robotic Age.
