Myth Debunked: Machines Create More Jobs Than They Destroy

Myth Debunked: Machines Create More Jobs Than They Destroy

Ding Ting/Xinhua/ZUMA MUNICH — Do machines replace humans? Since the beginning of industrialization 200 years ago, we earthlings have been plagued by this fear. From the early uprisings of the weavers to the 1970s "job killer computer" slogan, and up until the 2013 thesis of researchers Michael Osborne and Carl B. Frey, according to whom machines could soon take away every second job. But a German researcher, Terry Gregory of the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA), now presents a very different calculation. According to him, automation has brought Europe an additional 1.5 million jobs in the past decade.

Automation threatens a quarter United States jobs by 2030

For many sectors of the USA economy, the future of work is automation. Though the United States is in the middle of its second-longest expansion in history, and jobs data suggest that the economy remains healthy, many business leaders and economists have suggested in surveys that the United States could slip into a recession in 2020. "Similarly, the productivity and wage gains brought by automation can result in workers having more disposable income, which increases consumption and hence employment in other industries".

But with new advances in artificial intelligence, it’s not just industrial and warehouse robots that will alter the […]

Automation to hit most jobs, but overall impact 'muted': Study

Artificial intelligence and automation will lead to job losses in "virtually all occupational groups" over the coming decades in the United States, but the overall impact on employment will be "muted," a prominent think tank study said Thursday.

"Almost no occupation will be unaffected by the adoption of currently available technologies," said the Brookings Institution study.

The researchers, examining some 800 occupations, concluded that roughly 25 percent of US employment, or 36 million jobs in the United States, would face "high exposure to automation" in the coming decades.But they also pointed out that automation and artificial intelligence "are increasingly looking like […]

Automation in Asia. Are They Prepared?

Automation in Asia. Are They Prepared?

In the course of recent years, automation abilities have expanded definitely. Through incorporated work processes and data platforms, a wide scope of opportunities has made it feasible for organizations to automate their day to day and vital procedures so as to expand effectiveness.

Obviously, the majority of that is hypothetical. For tech organizations, particularly those in the fast-developing Asia Pacific region, one concern matters most importantly: is automation justified, despite all the trouble? All the more explicitly, by what means can the idea enable me to enhance incomes and develop my business while keeping up or bringing down operating resources?

“Lean In” and 8 Other Bad Business Buzzwords

A take on some of the key features of the bad business utopias that are busy colonizing the future. Photo by Morsa Images/Getty Images The near future is more likely to be a neoliberal dystopia than the tech-enabled utopia conjured up by big business, writes Peter Fleming in The Worst Is Yet to Come: A Post-Capitalist Survival Guide . He argues that we need “radical pessimism” to aim for the future we actually want, and aids the effort with sardonic humor that skewers the mythologies of our exploitative economic system.

In 1949, the right-wing economist F. A. Hayek published […]

Employment is an important part of our lives. It is the mechanism by which we earn the access to goods and services in order to live. And our careers are important in making us feel useful. If wee didn’t have jobs, society would have […]
