Description
"This book is a practical, broad-minded look at the effects of automation on the economy in the next ten to fifteen years and why the private sector needs to lead the charge in shaping a values-based response. The automation of a great deal of work as it is now known is no longer the concern of futurists, but of the current generation of business leaders and policy makers; Andrew Yang's recent run for the Democratic nomination, and his focus on UBI as a solution, is illustrative. The author's argument draws on her own experiences, historical examples, and reports from the frontiers of corporate life where these issues are unfolding. She proposes that the solutions to workforce upheaval lie in reskilling, a renewed focus on companies training their employees, alternative certification, and more. Businesses have a social responsibility to help their employees, and not just a profit motive"--,Provided by publisher.
