According to economist Richard Baldwin, “globotics” – a fusion of globalization and robotics – has triggered an industrial revolution that will hit service industry workers hard. The speed with which offshoring and software displace white-collar employees in the knowledge sector will be staggering. Yet Baldwin’s message is ultimately hopeful. In a candid conversation with economist Rob Johnson, Baldwin explains how society will adjust with time. But the transition to that new reality may be bumpy. Consider yourself forewarned.
