Digitalisation and the labor market


"For almost 200 years, economists have been investigating the concern that technology can steal jobs. Indeed, in the past decades, the pervasive diffusion of new ICT applications has led to a dramatic adjustment of the employment structure in almost all countries. The arrival of the internet, robots, and, more recently, progress in self-driving cars and artificial intellligence may trigger additional risks amongst all employees and not just those at the lower end of the qualification scale. Additionally, the destruction of routine jobs may create demand for new jobs required by the digitalization of organizations and processes. The Journal of Economics and Statistics (Jahrbücher für Nationalökonomie und Statistik) has a long lasting tradition in publishing papers on both theoretical and empirical contributions on a bundle of research questions associated with technological progress and labor market effects. This special issue continues this tradition. The contributions approach the topic on different levels of analysis." (Textauszug, © De Gruyter)
