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.

How can policymakers attract global investments?

Marco di Cataldo, Riccardo Crescenzi and Mara Giua from the Global Investment - Local Development research team at LSE explore the various policy tools available to local decision-makers to attract foreign investments, and most importantly, to make the most of them. Based on careful counterfactual analysis, their research has uncovered which policy tools work, and which don't.
