Research shows women are better positioned than men to resist the automation of work and possibly even benefit from it.
Women are overrepresented in industries that require high levels of social skills and empathy (such as nursing, teaching and care work), where it would be difficult to replace a human worker with automation. Women in advanced economies also have, on average, higher levels of education and digital literacy, giving them a comparative advantage in a labour market that is continuously transformed by technological innovation.

When you hear government statistics touting the lowest unemployment rate in history at 3.9%, it should be remembered that this number includes only 63% of all working age adults.

Tweet Artificial Intelligence
Mention artificial intelligence, and most people think one of two things – either “it’s science fiction” or “robots are going to steal our jobs”. Now it’s true that when it comes to the workplace, AI stands to significantly change the daily work environment, but that change is much more likely to mean increased efficiency and productivity, and not the doom and gloom that many claim. In fact, recent research suggests that robots create jobs – a study by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research […]

Graeber, an anthropology professor at the London School of Economics, was a mover and shaker in the Occupy Wall Street movement and is well known for his approachable critiques of neoliberal free market ideology. His new book, Bullshit Jobs: A Theory (Simon & Schuster; $27), sprang from a shorter essay he published in 2013 in a feminist-activist magazine called Strike , which quickly struck a nerve. (One that kept thrumming: on a Monday morning in 2015, an anonymous group plastered the London Underground with quotations from the writings.)
“Huge swathes of people spend their days performing jobs they secretly believe […]

What happened to manufacturing in the aughts? The usual story is that employment plummeted but output increased. Apparently manufacturing got a lot more efficient during this period, which is why so many people lost their jobs.
Susan Houseman begs to differ. Using sophisticated decompositions, she finds that it’s all a mirage: computer manufacturing got more efficient, but that’s about it. And even that’s a bit of a mirage due to the way inflation is calculated: it’s not that American workers are making a lot more computers than they used to, it’s that they’re making more MIPS, so to speak.
