How policy could handle workplace digitization
(), Evelina Stadin and Andreas Bergström
Abstract: While the brave new world of digital technology is
delivering intensive growth to some companies and individuals, the question
remains whether that growth ‘trickles down’ or ‘spills over’ to other
sectors of the economy rapidly enough to avoid the massive social
disruptions seen in earlier historical periods of economic transformation.
In this short paper we discuss the potential labour market consequences of
automation based on digital technology.
