Inequality and the Future of Labor

INSIGHTS policy debate - Attendance Event


The INSIGHTS policy debate on “Inequality and the Future of Labor” and the following welcome reception mark the start of the European Winter Meeting of the Econometric Society 2022 in Berlin. Renowned experts will discuss the implications of the future of work on inequality. How is the future of labor affected by long-term trends, such as demographic change, digitalization and the climate crisis? What is the effect of the war in Ukraine and the new geopolitical situation? How will these trends affect inequality? What are the main challenges and potentials? Can public policy address the challenges and if yes how?
