IN THIS SUMMARY

In Rise of the Robots, author Martin Ford taps into his years of experience in software development to discuss the dangerous impact robotics may soon have on the economy. According to Ford, accelerating technology not only has the power to eliminate blue- and white-collar jobs, but may derail the economic system altogether. In order to prevent this bleak future, leaders must learn about the fundamentals of both accelerating technology and the economy. Only with an understanding of these two forces can leaders begin shaping the policies necessary to prevent a future of economic despair.
