I will provide a bit of context. Which can be ignored as the background can be changed or at least the question can be treated as theoretical.
At a certain point in the future a universal welfare amount became a galactic law on all human controlled planets as recognized by the council.
This makes up the vast majority of human controlled planets. There are family or company controlled planets or even system. But those tend to be on the fringes of the human space, that is protected by human authority, and they end up offering more money to experts to come do whatever job is needed.
A major point in the setting is that machines run and do like 99% of things including the most menial tasks and more difficult ones.
Now every time I mention my AMI (Advanced machine intelligence) here people get angry and insist that it has to be either AI or current tech. So either true AI, which is still theoretical, or the same exact level of tech we have. I find it odd that I can't come up with super computers in a future setting that simulates 99% of basic human intelligence without it being called unrealistic or wrong, but I can wave my hand and voila AI is made which is still science fiction.
So. Please, can we treat this AMI thing and associated machine run stuff as a given?
Without getting into too much unrealistic stuff, it is my job to at least try to make a realistic setting I know, the machine run world is something made of pure economic reasons and just follows patters of already established corporate or government...etc behavior.
Lets take the cleaning staff for a company. If you can buy eternal robots, they need to be fixed bu otherwise no problem, for a cheaper price than you would hire a single human, with all that trouble that hiring a human would, won't you do it? Don't companies already do this as much as possible?
Again we can argue about the human touch and it is true. But I don't understand why would this derail the conversation from the basic point, my previous questions were about other stuff than this point, of machines doing a lot of things we did to something else?
The cost is also meaningless as arguing about it is like arguing with someone in the 1960s that computers will never be common because they are so large and expensive and insisting that such a thing will continue to be true in the future.
Well. This is the future
So. Again please let us consider those points as a given.
Humans. In this setting actually follow the previous laws of evolution of trading power and strength for intelligence. That is if you are smart enough to do stuff that machines don't do then you can find a job and have you direct those machines for more creative stuff.
The military is the biggest example as it has officers guiding the war machines of the future while the targeting and shooting is done by machines. Again this is how a lot of our current stuff is happening. A fighter pilot does not eye ball a target nowadays. It presses a bottom and a long range missile, say 80 km, that is self guided does that things that it is programmed to do.
Now is it too much of a stretch to say: In the future the pilot and missile are all machines guided while using both in a campaign is human guided?
All this context and ideas are to give enough info to, or at least try, justify the whole galactic welfare aspect.
So. At a certain point in the future all humans get a big some of money monthly no matter where.
FTL travel is a thing and so planets are connected. Humanity is more of a federation than one single state with laws but there are hundreds of agencies whose whole purpose is to insure that planets, even the most remote one, comply with the core laws and regulations of humanity.
Also humanity is not alone and a lot of galactic political play is around undermining systems.
Thus we can expect something close to a 100% compliance when it comes to such laws or the planet will be called to justify it's actions but I digress.
Now I know that a lot of our economy depends on people doing a job for a company and in return the company gives them money.
In the future only few people, who are not only smart enough but also motivated enough, have job while the rest get their fairly large sums of money to do as they please.
Now. I have zero idea of how will that affect the economy. Like inflation or would the profit margin of companies be so high, because machines produce stuff that is so cheap to make and they can price it for whatever price they like, that it would cause problem...etc.
But companies are not stupid so will leaving the market alone insure that it is fixed because the successful companies will continue to be so while the other ones will fail?
So. Basically I want the basic framework or idea behind such a system.
What mechanics, principles, ideas...etc would be needed to create such a system?
There is no need to worry about any other considerations other the mere economical system. Politics of different types, like left or right, or companies refusing, or people migrating to other planet...etc all such aspects are of little value to the core system I'm trying to figure out here. It's like if someone wants to build a nuclear bomb and just wants the scientific laws and resources to do so without worrying about morals or their public image...etc
Obviously if it is not possible I'd like to know why. Perhaps I can tweak things to solve it.
Sorry about the extra stuff above. I just want us to focus on the basic idea.
