The Globotics Upheaval

BOOK

The Globotics Upheaval: Globalization, Robotics, and the Future of Work

by Richard E. Baldwin
globotics cover page

While globalization and robotics, “globotics”, will eventually make a better world, they are today creating competition for service-sector jobs that is coming faster than most believe and in ways that will seem incredibly unfair. If the displaced office workers join with the displaced factory workers, the result could be a disruptive upheaval. This book argues that workers need to prepare for the future of work in new ways, and governments regulate the pace and unfairness of the competition from globots.

"With its focus on the scale, speed and scope of technological transformation, and its impact on employment, this book breaks new ground."

Gordon Brown, UK Prime Minister, 2007-2010

"Richard Baldwin has written the best book yet on the new economic era we are entering. Any worker, company or government who doesn’t want to be left behind should read and consider his arguments."

Lawrence H. Summers, Ex-Secretary of the US Treasury, ex-President of Harvard
