EconTalk this week
Tyler Cowen of George Mason University and blogger at Marginal Revolution talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about his latest book Average is Over. Cowen takes a provocative look at how the growing power of artificial intelligence embodied in machines and technologies might change labour markets and the standard of living. He tries to predict which people and which skills will be complementary to smart machines and which people and which skills will struggle.
