How Safe is Your Job

There has been a recent push in the United States to highlight the role of automation replacing labor in the workforce. This Kahoot covers the Freakonomics podcast “How Safe is Your Job?” While the podcast is around 30 minutes in total, the quiz takes less than 10 minutes to complete. The two interview David Autor, John Komlos, and Randall Monroe on what they believe is the roll of humans as the workplace becomes more automized. The roll of creative destruction in the workplace allows for the invention of new products and services that had not previously been considered, which makes it difficult to really forecast what happens in the future. This story is told through the history of the player piano transitioning to radios.
