Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When I hear about automation increasing worker productivity, I sometimes think of the productivity of a factory that only needs one worker -- huge, presumably.

In principle, a factory might need no workers at all. Would worker productivity then be infinite, the denominator having become zero?

Words and ideas I offer here may be used freely and without attribution.
