Claire Lelarge gave a presentation on 19 November at the online Webinar “Globalization, Technology and Firms: Labor Market Outcomes“. She presented “Competing With Robots: Firm Level Evidence From France” (with Daron Acemoglu and Pascual Restrepo).
The third conference on “Globalization, Technology and Firms: Labor Market Outcomes” focuses this year on the roles of globalisation, technology and labour market regulation on growth and labour market outcomes. Most economic activity in advanced economies is organised within and between firms. Therefore, changes in types of firms, their internal organisation and in firms’ market and employment shares over time are important factors that drive structural change and changes in the labour income distribution. The objective of the webinar is to discuss recent contributions to the understanding of the rapid structural change experienced by most advanced economies recently.
