Robot Taxes

Two of the fastest growing areas involving the use of robotics are in medicine and in liquid and material handling applications in biotechnology. Robotic systems have already found their way into a number of other industries as well. In a recent interview with Quartz magazine, Bill Gates argues that since humans are losing their jobs to robots governments should “tax companies’ use of them [robots] as a way to at least temporarily slow the spread of automation and to fund other types of employment.”

Do you agree that companies should be taxed for using robots?
