Which jobs and tasks are most susceptive to be substituted by robots or being outsourced to low wage countries?
Debates around these questions are not new but still highly emotional. Especially since the times of industrial revolution, the fear of technological unemployment has always been present - from "spinning jenny", steam engine, railroads to computers, robots and algorithms.
We try to provide theories and facts from the field of economics to shed light on this debate. What strategy should organizations and individuals follow? The very short answer is: education, interactive tasks and Innovation.
In this podcast episode I talk with Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Dauth, assistant Professor of Empirical Regional and International Economics @University of Würzburg @WiWi_Uni_Wuerzburg and Senior Researcher @IAB, Institute for Employment Research.
