Book presentation "Digitized Labor: the Impact of the Internet on Employment"

Employment and Social policy
Date: Monday, 02 July 2018 12:15 - 14:45

Venue: CEPS Working Party Room - 3rd floor  |  City: Brussel

Recently published by Palgrave, this book provides new evidence showing the impact of the Internet on jobs. Most empirical studies indicate that the Internet has indeed created many new jobs, but that a large number of jobs may also have been destroyed or downgraded, at least in the short run. Furthermore, harmful effects, such as routinization, job market polarization and new inequalities in the labor market have emerged. Thus, while the diffusion of the Internet creates opportunities, it also comes with ambiguous trends that by themselves will not generate a more resilient and inclusive labor market. These changes cannot be dealt with as 'business-as-usual' by governments and the private sector. Failure to mitigate short-term job losses risks triggering labour opposition and restrictive policy responses that threaten to slow down the ICT revolution.
