Ep. 19: The Robot Question

We talk about our latest initiative to elevate "The Robot Question" on the national agenda. We want US Presidential Candidates to give their thoughts on the broader debate over workforce automation. Are they concerned about these trends? Do they believe they will be a net economic boon? Most importantly: do they have any policy prescriptions in mind to respond to potential challenges posed increased automation and computerization of jobs.

Be sure to check out our extended article on "The Robot Question." And be sure to sign our petition on Change.org to add your voice to those seeking to ask US Presidential Candidates about the issue.
