Between the automation of automobiles and the transition from gas to electric, the economic implications are going to be insane.
Electric cars have fewer moving parts and don’t require routine oil changes, which threatens the auto parts industry and “quick lube” shops like Jiffy Lube. Not too mention the millions of gas stations around the country who will likely suffer because most folks will opt to charge at home or work.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Autonomous vehicles will eventually replace professional drivers. In the US alone that includes over 200,000 taxi drivers and 3+ million truck drivers! Not to mention the reduction in the need for auto insurance and collision repair. And since autonomous vehicles will be programmed to obey traffic laws there will be significant decreases in law enforcement funding from fines. And unless an autonomous vehicle comes with some sort of change dispenser the panhandlers are going to have to abandon their street corners to beg for change (does panhandling count as an industry?).
