Page said the world should be living in a "time of abundance" in which robots and machines could help meet everyone's basic needs much more easily.

"If you really think about the things you need to make yourself happy -- housing, security, opportunity for your kids ... it's not that hard for us to provide those things," Page said. "The idea that everyone needs to work frantically to meet peoples' needs is not true."
