Simon Johnson

Hosted by the Stanford Digital Economy Lab, co-author Simon Johnson will present a seminar on the central questions: Are there ways to harness automation so that its benefits are shared more broadly? How can we create more good jobs? And how does the potential direction of technological change affect the U.S. position in the world, in terms of both broad geopolitics and our ability to defend ourselves against potential threats?
