Labor Market Effects of Automation and Technology Adoption in the Global Economy
Santiago de Chile
This workshop aims to bring together a group of researchers working on topics related to automation, technological change, and labor markets in a global economy. We will discuss theoretical and empirical contributions that help us understand the determinants of automation in an open economy and discuss the impact of automation and technology adoption on firms and their workers.
The organizers are seeking papers in the broad areas of technological change and labor markets. Topics that may be relevant in this area include: technology-driven divergences between countries, the effect of new technologies on labor markets, the changing task content of jobs and differences between developed and developing countries, the role of automation and digital technologies in creating or displacing jobs, and the implications of the adoption of new technologies for international trade, investments and development.
