Automation and the Future of Work

In Automation and the Future of Work, Aaron Benanav uncovers the structural economic trends that will shape our working lives in the future. What social movements, he asks, are required to propel us into post-scarcity, if technological innovation alone can’t deliver it? Aaron offers a counter-proposal to Universal Basic Income.

This video is the first lecture in the Raport Centre's Fall 2020 Colloquium, “Inequality, Labor, and Human Rights: The Future of Work in the Age of Pandemic.” It is part of a new inter-disciplinary and cross-campus Pop-Up Institute, “Beyond the Future of Work: New Paradigms for Addressing Global Inequality,” supported by the US Office of the Vice President for Research.
