What is the Code Economy? And what does it have to do with the future of work? Some people argue that machines will take over jobs, while others argue that perhaps humanity will reinvent work in a way that’s more aligned with what it means to be human. Maria Armoudian discusses these questions with Philip Auerswald.
Philip Auerswald is an Associate Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University and a Senior Fellow at the Kauffman Foundation. He is an expert in economics and entrepreneurship and his publications include The Code Economy: Surviving, Even Thriving, in the New World of Work and The Coming Prosperity: How Entrepreneurs Are Transforming the Global Economy.
