About IT unemployment: reflecting on Normative Aspects of the ‘Broken Link’
2014 (English)In: IIDE proceedings 2014: social Change in Our Technology-Based World / [ed] Mark Rathbone, Fabian von Schéele and Sytse Strijbos, Amsterdam: IIDE , 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
The widespread use of information and communication technologies has given rise to some moral challenges that deserve particular attention. One such is the discrepancy between productivity growth and technological unemployment. This paper argues that if subsequent undesirable consequences of technological unemployment are to be avoided, there is a need for additional research to embed normative considerations into a scientific context, by linking technological progress with the ‘Ought to Be’ of the economic and societal order.
