The digital transformation of the global economy is more than automation and AI — it is a fundamental structural transformation. As two of the leading global economies, the United States and Germany are at the forefront of debates about what the changes brought by technological progress mean for employees, gig workers, unions, and businesses.
What innovative ideas are out there to make the digital economy a working economy for all? Please join us for a discussion with policy makers and union leaders from both sides of the Atlantic as we address this challenging question.
