Betsey Stevenson on the Future of Technology and Employment

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we continue the release of our 2019 Future of Work Conference lectures with an address by Betsey Stevenson, Professor of Public Policy and Economics at the University of Michigan.  Betsey Stevenson addresses two competing visions of future employment and makes the case that technological advances, far from destroying human civilization, have consistently bettered it.  She addresses the past and present concerns surrounding technological advances and makes the case that the real concern of the future is less about employment and more about redistribution.
