How Technology Is Destroying Jobs

Why has the employment market remained so sluggish in the US since 2000? Is technology to blame or is the economy simply too complex to point to a single culprit?

If technology is to blame as in times past, will the employment market rebound once entrepreneurs create new opportunities and workers adjust their skills? Or are digital and emerging technologies likely to stifle employment as we know it?

How can we divine the winners and losers in this time of transition?

MIT’s Technology Review explores these questions and more with the implication that: “Economic theory and government policy will have to be rethought if technology is indeed destroying jobs faster than it is creating new ones.”
