Sounds Robotic: A CGD Podcast with Charles Kenny

The invention and adoption of technology is a powerful force underlying global development and a significant factor in determining which countries are comparatively rich and healthy and which are poor and sick. CGD’s Study Group on Technology, Comparative Advantage, and Development Prospects is looking at current technology trends, including those around automation and artificial intelligence, and thinking through what they might imply for global economic growth and the distribution of income into the future. This podcast miniseries, hosted by CGD senior fellow Charles Kenny and featuring Study Group members and other experts, is part of that effort.
