Economic Impacts of Globalization and Technological Disruption
When G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors met last month in Argentina, they highlighted the “immense economic opportunities” provided by transformative technologies. They also acknowledged, however, the attendant challenges, including changes to labor markets, the importance of adequate skills training, and the risk of increased inequality. Technological change, like globalization, will transform the future of work and education, underscoring the need to prepare labor markets and labor forces for future disruptions. While the benefits from trade and technology are tangible, so are the disruptions they produce. These changes are “equal opportunity” in the sense that workers across all sectors and skill levels will be affected, requiring policymakers to develop appropriate responses.
Please join the CSIS Simon Chair in Political Economy and the Project for Prosperity and Development on the morning of Friday, April 20 for an expert panel discussion exploring opportunities and challenges facing public and private sector participants as they consider the future economy, followed by keynote remarks by Senator Mark Warner (D-VA).
This event is made possible by support from the Royal Embassy of Denmark.
