Economic Inequality & Employment

From shifting job categories , the disruption and decimation of industries, and an impending global skills mismatch, to the concentration of extreme wealth, income inequality, and avoidance of corporate taxes, Silicon Valley’s role in furthering economic inequality is hugely important, insufficiently understood, and under-actioned. The role technology plays in changing the conditions and types of employment, as well as reshaping global economics, is not the most publicized problem the industry has weathered, but it will be the next—and it will be the worst. Like other harmful social outcomes in which it is complicit, the tech industry’s mentality, priorities, and […]

Trump Should Focus on Warren, not Biden

Trump Should Focus on Warren, not Biden

President Donald Trump appears obsessed about getting something on former Vice President Joe Biden. Should he survive impeachment, however Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the opponent he should be worried about most.

Surging in the polls, the Massachusetts Democrat best speaks to the trials of Americans who came of age in this century and educated women – groups whose voting numbers are growing.

Much as Trump tapped displaced blue-collar workers and their offspring in smaller cities and rural areas often dependent on manufacturing -a cohort receding in importance as many skill-up and migrate to metropoles offering better job opportunities.That new economy-so often […]

Of all places, I thought of coolies during a trip to Binondo, the heart of our Chinatown, last weekend as we came close to a gridlock. […]

Robots to Replace 200,000 Banking Jobs: Report

The next decade will see the greatest transfer from labor to capital the banking industry has ever seen.

Tech, sales, and consulting positions will be less affected, but total estimated cuts could still […]
