Event description
Globalisation, Robotics and the Future of Work – The Globotics Upheaval

About this Event

In a world of disruptors and “virtual” globalization, how should we prepare and respond to “future-proof” jobs and hard-won prosperity? Who will be the winners, and who the losers? What strategies may be implemented to harness the major economic forces shaping the global future, address a resultant rise in inequality, and populism, and focus on issues including the social value of work.

Richard Baldwin is Professor of International Economics at the Graduate Institute, Geneva, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the policy portal VoxEU.org, and Associate Member, Nuffield College, University of Oxford. In addition to his research and teaching, he advises governments and international organisations around the world on globalisation and trade policy issues.

In 1990-91 he served as a Senior Staff Economist for President George Bush's Council of Economic Advisors, having completed his PhD in economics at MIT with Paul Krugman (with whom he has published a half dozen articles).

His latest book, The Globotics Upheaval: Globalization, Robotics and the Future of Work, was published in February 2019.
