About the speaker

Richard Baldwin is a Professor of International Economics at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. He also serves as Editor-in-Chief of VoxEU.org, which he founded, and was previously Visiting Professor at the University of Oxford and MIT. He served as a Senior Staff Economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisors in the Bush Administration (1990-1991).

About the book

In this engagingly-written, insight-packed book, Richard Baldwin, one of the world's leading globalization experts, argues that the inhuman speed of this 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 much faster than automation, industrialization, and globalization disrupted lives in previous centuries.
