Is the modern mechanisation of industrial practices and labour markets now of such intensity and scale that there is simply bound to be a devastation of job opportunities across the Western world and a forced swell (whether ultimately socially and psychologically agreeable or not) in human leisure time?
Or are we simply witnessing a form of trade cycle effect, i.e. that as with similar waves of technological innovation (breaking ever since the 19th century) whereupon some sectors and skills will (perhaps abruptly, perhaps brutally) be eliminated while entrepreneurship and new skill evolutions make new markets and restore levels of employment?
In this whitepaper we look at the impact of automation on modern career markets and anticipate the consequences for income, leisure and work-life balance.
