不会让人下岗的科技

发自旧金山——这是一个大众恐慌自动化工业会让人类工作岗位消失的时代,媒体上充斥着悲观的标题,警告机器人的大规模应用会让某些职业门类彻底不复存在。但这种宿命论似乎在假设我们根本无力驾驭那些被创造来改善我们生活——事实上,是我们的工作——的东西。

其实我们已经可以在某些在线人才平台上发现一些科技有潜力帮助解决工作问题的证据。数码平台已经令经济中的许多部门发生了转型。比如零售业原本只服务于一城一地,如今却被亚马逊和阿里巴巴构建的在线市场平台就在某种程度上重塑了。

在线人才平台也通过类似的手法作用于人们的工作——同时也产生了类似的影响。通过建立地区性,全国性甚至全球性的就业市场,平台令雇主可以在更大型的人才库中甄选英才,也让求职者能去检索数量更加庞大的就业机会。平台用这一手段革新了传统的找工方式,而且惠及越来越多的雇主和劳动者,以至于可以左右就业数据了。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
