"Technology and the labour market: the assessment"

by Adams, Abi (2018)


This article reviews the evidence on how technology will affect labour markets in advanced democracies over the next 10–15 years. In addition to assessing evidence on the impact of technology on the aggregate number of jobs, we take a wider view to consider how the ‘Digital Revolution’ will affect the quality and composition of jobs, how and where we work, and whether labour is supplied as part of a larger firm or as a self-employed micro-entrepreneur. This assessment further aims to situate the papers covered in this issue of the Oxford Review of Policy within the broader literature.
