Domestic Public Policy

MIT Initiative on Technology and the Future of Labor

Grant Year: 2021


David Autor, Daron Acemoglu, and John Van Reenen will direct a policy lab exploring how technology is changing the economy and shaping economic and employment opportunities for individuals from a variety of backgrounds. They will produce research related to the links between innovation, productivity, and employment; the evolution of employment and wages at firms that have adopted new technologies; and how earlier generations of technological change affected employment patterns. The findings from the lab will be presented in a series of research papers and articles.
