Our IEI colleagues Javier Andrés and Rafael Doménech, have presented their book "The Age of Digital Disruption".

In the book The Age of Digital Disruption they try to offer a balanced analysis of the effect of the digital revolution, which avoids falling into the dystopia of a society that is mostly impoverished and dominated by robots (or their owners). But also in the utopia of an exaggerated optimism about the effects of technology on all aspects of our lives. The thesis they defend is that there is nothing inevitable or inexorable in the advance of new technologies. All the risk factors are also opportunities for a different working and professional life, one that is more creative, reconciling with family, social or recreational activities, and freed from some of the heaviest, most dangerous or routine jobs. In short, a society that is not only more prosperous but also more inclusive.
