May 20, 2021
7:30 p.m.–9:00 p.m. EST
WEBINAR

Nicole Gelinas, Michael Mandel, and Peter Coy discussed what the future job market will look like. Can manufacturing return? Is innovation key to the future? What role will technology and artificial intelligence play? Where do education, government, and entrepreneurialism fit in? What about unions? What jobs will fade away and what is likely to replace them? How can we prepare for a viable prosperous job future? This event was organized by the Network for Responsible Public Policy.
