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 say that 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. He is an expert in economics and entrepreneurship and is the author of The Code Economy: Surviving, Even Thriving, in the New World of Work.
