31 May 2019: Launch of the book titled, “The Globoticsc Upheaval: Globalisation, Robotics and the Future of Work

Richard Baldwin
The Graduate Institute, Geneva

Organised by:
Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER), in partnership with the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI)

In his book, Richard Baldwin, argues that the inhuman speed of this global transformation threatens to overwhelm our capacity to adapt. When technology enables people from around the world to be a virtual presence in any given office, “Globotics” will disrupt the lives of millions of skilled workers in most countries, including India, much faster than automation, industrialization and globalization disrupted lives in previous centuries.

More specifically, it looks at the measures that people and governments can take in response to such a tectonic economic and cultural shift. While the changes are inevitable, the book offers strategies that humanity can use to adapt to this new world, employing the indispensable skills that no machine can copy: creativity and independent thought.
