    Robinson has four reasons to believe AI and automation benefit everyone…

    Last month, the Asian Development Bank said automation created an extra 34 million jobs in the region. That’s because the tech lowered prices while improving quality for Asian goods. In a 2017 study, Deloitte found that automation in the United Kingdom destroyed 800,000 jobs in the past 15 years, but over that same period, it created 3 million jobs. And they paid an average of $13,500 more than the old ones. The Centre for European Economic Research predicts that by 2021, industrial employment in its home market of Germany will rise by 1.8%. The study says that’s because the tech is making those factories more competitive. And a June 2017 study sponsored by Salesforce.com Inc. (NYSE: CRM) puts the economic growth of AI at $1.1 trillion by 2021. That’s just for cloud-based revenue in the customer relationship–management end of the cloud computing sector.

    And investors can ride this boom to enormous profits too.

The company has developed tZERO, a cryptocurrency and blockchain-based registry that complies with the regulations of the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. IBM (IBM) has developed blockchain technology that they are using with a large variety of partners in a large variety of industries. One example is their partnership with food retailers, most notably Walmart, to help quickly, efficiently, and securely track the supply chain to help ensure ideal food safety.

Without any outright hostility among leaders of the G-7 nations in their summit in Canada’s Quebec City, investors seemed content to go into the weekend with confidence in the prospects for the U.S. economy and its biggest businesses. Yet some individual companies had bad news that held their shares back from participating in the rally.

Hot Tech Stocks To Watch For 2019

Since president-elect Donald Trumps surprise election victory, large-cap technology stocks such as Apple (NSDQ:AAPL), Alphabet Inc-C (NSDQ:GOOG) and Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) are in a period of consolidation as many fear that Trumps tough stance against tech companies could play out in the months to come. During the campaign trail, he hinted that he could reign in international trade agreements, limit the scope of net neutrality and tighten immigration policy for skilled tech workers, which would prove a drag on the earnings potential of large-cap technology companies like Microsoft.

More than 90% of Microsofts cash (approx. $100 billion) is held by its overseas subsidiaries, which prompted many to assume that Trumps tax pledge to introduce a one-off repatriation tax rate of 10%, represents a boon for Microsoft as it would potentially net a $25 billion tax windfall than if it were subject to the current repatriation tax rate of 35%. However, a 10% rate is still higher than the rate it pays in a few of its overseas domiciles, so Microsoft is unlikely to repatriate a large chunk of its $100 billion cash pile to benefit from the Trump Tax plan.
