Livestream with Nir Jaimovich, Wednesday, 23 June 2021, 17:00–18:00 (CET)

In the last four decades, many industrialized economies have experienced the phenomenon of "job polarization”, where the fraction of the population working in middle-waged jobs has dropped. This process has been linked to automation, which replaces specific tasks of human labor. What happens to people who possess skills that are being replaced? And what options do governments have for coping with such changes?
