AI is going to put a lot more than 1/2 the population out of work, eventually. You didn't give a time frame for your estimate. It's already putting people out of work. Within maybe 50 years I suspect it will be ~75%. Don't think we can replace the contractor (plumber, etc). CEOs won't allow themselves to be replaced, but they probably could be. Even now.** In the future, almost certainly.

Contractors, artists, scientists...pretty much everything else can be done by AI (either now, or in the plausible future).



**I've read articles that CEOs don't make that much difference, especially in proportion to their salaries.
