Technology and the future of labour

Live recording of the Weekly Economics Podcast with Aaron Bastani

Technology has the potential to unlock a society based on abundance, not scarcity.

But what are the steps to get us there? Emerging technologies like AI and increased automation are already changing the workplace — and as a result, the future world of work is likely to look radically different.

Is a low-work or even work-free world a utopian fantasy or is it within reach? How do the struggles of the labour movement today — against low pay, precarious work, and low levels of unionisation — map onto the struggles of the future?
