Who feels less productive now than 30 years ago? We are so much more incredibly wealthy now, we just consume more now, instead satisifying basic needs and then sleeping 18 hours per day.

Plus some unequal distribution of wealth.

I don't think I understand your point. I get what you're saying regarding increased consumption, a lot of people have argued that point. What does distribution of wealth have to do with changes in productivity as it relates to increased workplace automation?
