Race Against The Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy

Author: Erik Brynjolfsson

Book Site: Race Against the Machine

Could technology be destroying jobs?

In "Race Against the Machine" Brynjolfsson and McAfee bring together a range of statistics, examples, and arguments in an attempt to show that technological progress is accelerating, and that this trend has deep consequences for skills, wages, and jobs. The book makes the case that employment prospects are grim for many today not because technology has stagnated, but instead because we humans and our organizations aren't keeping up.

This book is designed for anyone who wants to understand why we can have a recession, a jobless recovery and growing income distribution inequities all at the same time.
