Economics 101: Does mechanisation and technology destroy jobs?

LearnLiberty.org has new video out which you can view below called Does Government Create Jobs.  Some people believe that the government can create jobs and others don’t.  You’ll find out the true answer to that question in the video.

But something you may not have considered is whether job creation is the best thing for the economy.  Creating jobs is actually relatively easy but what is not so easy is actually creating wealth.

And do advances in technology destroy jobs?  It’s true that technological advances can cause short term unemployment.  But are these advances bad for economic progress and the creation of wealth?

There are several important economics questions answered and myths dispelled in the video.  It is vital, in my opinion, that people who vote understand these fundamental economic truths so they will not be fooled by candidates who make promises which are impossible.
