New Book "The Future of Work:  Robots, AI, and Automation" (Brookings Press)

Robots, artificial intelligence, and driverless cars are no longer fantasy, but are with us today and will become increasingly common in coming years. As these tools advance deeper into everyday use, how will they transform society, the economy, and politics? In this book, West argues that society needs to rethink the concept of work, reconfigure the social contract, move toward lifetime learning, and develop a new kind of politics that can deal with economic dislocations.
