The Workplace Implications of Global Technological Advance
Pages 8

The technological changes shaping U.S. institutions and their workforce portray a workplace situation that is either calamitously poor or rosily encouraging. The conflicting evidence is inherent in the dynamics of an evolving transnational technological and economic system that is increasingly borderless. This system underlies and motivates the allocation and reallocation of productive resources worldwide through a tightly woven fabric of global interdependencies among national and multinational enterprises. We review the causes and consequences and suggest some actions that might ameliorate adverse effects.
