> just making more money doesn't magically fix the problem

Magically, no. With an effort yes. There are already experiments with basic pay for example.

Jeremy Rifkin books such as https://www.amazon.com/End-Work-Decline-Global-Post-Market/d... & 'Zero Marginal Cost' discuss the topic.

Yes exactly. We really hope to see this effort made. It's a fixable problem, but often in history great inequality is only fixed by violent revolution, which I don't want to see happen in my (or my daughter's) time!
