>>With computers smarter than humans a large amount of society would be out of a job.<<

Sure, but the price of production of the goods made only by robots would be close to zero (except for the energy needed, but intelligent robots probably requires drexler-like nanotech which would allow also a very low cost for energy production).

>> The economy can't function like that because people need something to trade for the things they need.<<
