Our Bright, Jobless Future: Trump Policy vs AI

Mar 15, 2017

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Trump says he has a plan to bring jobs back to the United States, but what the country desperately needs isn’t a way to eradicate unemployment, but to embrace it. There are fewer than 200,000 Americans employed in coal. But one out of seven people in the US work in a transportation industry with even bleaker prospects. The question isn’t whether they will lose their jobs, but how many and how soon. The tech sector can giveth as well as taketh away, but it needs a partner in the West Wing. "Crowdsourcing" and "Whiplash" author Jeff Howe discusses how Trump could turn an economic catastrophe to truly make America great again.
