The Future of Work

September 30th, 2016

Episode 441 of 494 episodes

What does the revolution in work mean for us today? With an ever-increasing divide between the rich and the rest, the traditional solutions – improved education or wage subsidiaries, for example – will no longer work as they once did. In order to navigate our way across today’s rapidly transforming economic landscape, we must radically reassess the very idea of how, and why, we work. Join the Economist’s Ryan Avent at the RSA as he tackles the future of work, the state we’re currently in - and how we could get out of it.
