Automation and the future of jobs: Stijn Broecke in conversation with Daniel S Hamermesh

Policies to address automation should focus on skills alongside reform of labor market institutions, says Stijn Broecke. The questions discussed in this video include:

- Which jobs/occupations have been automated out of existence over the past decade?
- What has happened to those workers who have lost jobs because of automation?
- Which jobs/occupations do you think are most likely to be automated out of existence over the next decade?
- How do you think the pandemic will affect the rate and direction of automation over the next 12 months?
