[Question] (How) Could an AI become an independent economic agent?

Meaning that the money it makes wouldn’t be owned by any humans. Is a plausible thing that could happen? I can see an em doing that, but what about a machine intelligence?

Relatedly: Is there currently money that nobody owns? This seems like a silly question, and the answer is probably no, but let me know if I missed an example: https://​​www.quora.com/​​unanswered/​​Is-there-money-that-nobody-owns
