Sorting Robots: How Automation Shapes the Allocation of Workers – Salvatore Lattanzio
Salvatore Lattanzio discusses the impact of automation on labour market sorting in his research project, Sorting Robots: How Automation Shapes the Allocation of Workers Across Firms, sponsored by the Keynes Fund, Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge.
