Tej did one, and I liked the idea, so I'm going to do it too. Ask me anything about politics/economics/etc.

What's your thoughts on increasing technological unemployment (i.e., automation of jobs), and the argument that a basic income may be necessary because of it?

It's largely a myth. I will never support a basic income, as I despise redistribution, but the idea that we somehow are having "less" employment in the long run due to technological developments is mythical at best. The assembly line, sewing machines, etc. have all been technological developments which have reduced labor in the short term, but have increased it in the long term as it led to redistribution.

Do you believe unemployment rates are exaggerated and less of a problem as they are made out to be, and that inflation is a bigger issue?

Do you believe regulations benefit big businesses and hurt smaller ones?

What do you believe are some negative effects from Obama's stimulus packages excluding debt? Do you see stimulus spending as a form of crony Capitalism?

Employment numbers are largely mistaken, as our actual employment is far higher than the reported. And yes, inflation is a much bigger issue.

Do you believe regulations benefit big businesses and hurt smaller ones?

They don't benefit big businesses so much as they harm small businesses more, so it drives them out completely while the bigger guys can handle it more.

What do you believe are some negative effects from Obama's stimulus packages excluding debt? Do you see stimulus spending as a form of crony Capitalism?

One of the longest recovery rates and higher spending was a negative effect, and yes, I do see stimulus as being crony.

The assembly line, sewing machines, etc. have all been technological developments which have reduced labor in the short term, but have increased it in the long term as it led to redistribution.

It's actually not a myth. Your examples provided "assembly line" and "sewing machines" are not a proper comparison here. Let's review both examples, their impacts on their unique markets, and finish both by adding an extra variable to define proper comparison.

1) The invention of the Ford Production Line (assembly line) increased efficiency and competence of every worker, decreased number of errors committed, increased speed of product build, increased daily output, and in turn lowered production costs which significantly lowered cost of finished product for the consumer. The increased availability of product in conjunction with significantly lower purchase price meant higher demand; higher demand mandates increased production to increase supply. Increased product requirements results in an increase in a company's labor requirements which means an increase in employment. This was the actual result back in 1911 with the invention of the Ford Production Line.

Now, in 1962, the first industrial robot was installed and went live within the General Motors automotive factory in New Jersey; this robot performed fully automated spot welding and die casting extractions. As the technology was proven, more industrial robots were designed and implemented. Although these robots increased production rates and decreased cost to consumers, increasing demand; the growth of automation within the automotive manufacturing field meant less workers were required.

Say six employees each shift are required to install the four doors on each vehicle manufactured. Two automated robots are implemented, one for each side of the car; those six workers are no longer required for door installation and are subsequently terminated due to position being dissolved. As robotic integration increases, four stations totaling 24 employees per shift are downsized to one employee who only provides oversight of the robots. Technological growth and integration is the cause of labor requirement decreases, not the assembly line.

2) Let's hit this in much shorter fashion. People initially hand sewn everything. Low supply, high manufacturing times and costs. The invention of the sewing machine increased production speed, decreased cost to consumer, increased demand, and increased labor requirements. This is the same as the Ford Production Line.

The invention of the automated, robotic sewing machines, just as robotics in the automotive factories, decreased labor requirements.

Do not confuse innovation and efficiency with technological, automation advances.

I can already tell you don't understand economics fully when you use the term "trickle-down". It's more of a political term than an economic one.

To answer your question, when arguing for the biggest loser of economic history, which is state intervention, I'll point to the vast success of the American industrial sector in the quasi-free market we had in the 1800s and the productivity increases when we were able to win the game of comparative advantage.
