Technological revolutions must be matched by policies

Philippe Aghion (College of France, LSE, and CEPR) discusses work on merged datasets from the UK - one detailing occupation & wages, the other looking at R&D and investment. As firms become more innovative they will outsource higher fraction of low-skilled occupations, however they will also invest more in training and retaining low-skilled workers with useful 'soft' skills. Success of industries or countries during a period of technological revolution (such as the advance of AI) depends on good labour policies and investment in education and training.

The power of promising free tuition

Susan Dynarski, who was herself a first-generation college student, talks about a pilot scheme where the University of Michigan specifically targeted a group of low-income high-school students -and the trusted adults around them - with a commitment of four years of free tuition and fees if they were accepted on a course. Compared to the control group who received the standard information, application rates more than doubled, with implications for reducing income inequality in the US.
