Bob uses comparative advantage to to argue that human workers will always find a place in the economy, regardless of how productive super-AI systems may become. He then addresses the fear that superAIs will simply rearrange our molecules for building material.

    Hi Bob, loved the episode.
    But proliferation of AI could lead to decline in human population. We already see the trend in developed economies.

    So if demand for human labor keeps falling (even accounting for comparative advantage), the number humans on the planet might naturally drop. Unless, like you mentioned in the episode, the AI go out of their way to support the human population.
