By Martin Ford
Recommended by
"Rise of the Robots" by Martin Ford analyses the profound impact of automation and artificial intelligence on the job market and society as a whole.

Drawing on extensive research and data, Ford explains how recent advancements in technology have led to the displacement of many jobs and the erosion of middle-class livelihoods. He argues that this trend is likely to continue, as machines become increasingly capable of performing complex tasks traditionally done by humans.

Ford explores the potential consequences, including rising inequality, decreased consumer purchasing power, and a shrinking job market. He also discusses the challenges faced by workers in an automated world and offers potential solutions, such as a universal basic income and increased investment in education and retraining programs.

With a balanced approach, Ford acknowledges the benefits of automation while warning against the grave social, economic, and political consequences of not adequately preparing for the rise of the robots.

"Rise of the Robots" is a timely and thought-provoking examination of the technological changes that are reshaping our world and challenging our assumptions about work and productivity.
