And the number of people for all of the things you mention is going down, not up.

Create products....certainly, however the number required is FAR far less. a decade ago I led a team of 8 others to make a product, today I could do that same product with me, and one other guy.
Market and sell.....Same product, we had a marketing team of 4, today that same company has one guy. And if its popular enough you could put that one amazon and call it good for many things.
Travel? Bwahahaha. Sorry but augmented virtual reality is coming
accounting....more and more automated as well
consult....probably a couple more jobs here.

In the end....you're discussing how many jobs will be gone. And the ones that are left will be for high functioning professionals like me. Which I mean hey, thats great for me, not so great for everyone else.

And the second part of your sentence distinguishes you as a more moral person than all those who wouldn't give a second thought to the impact on other people.

We could always expunge the economic system itself and just make everything free. But we mist face in our life times machines will be able to do anything. Doctor? Machine can do it. Manager? Machine can do it. CEO? Machine can do it. Congressman? Machine can do it.
