History and the Future of Work

September 8, 2018 - Denver

Most of us work, but how do economists look at the world of work? What does the future of work hold? This class will explore some of the pressing issues of employment and work. Why has wage growth been stagnant? Has automation been good or bad for workers? How will automation change the future of work? Can education stay ahead of the technological changes? Will there be sufficient job growth in well-paying jobs in the future? Just how far can artificial intelligence penetrate the labor market? Should optimism or pessimism prevail? Sign up to explore these and other reflections on the labors of humankind.
