All Work and No Pay in 2013: The Automation of the Global Economy
Date: Saturday, 9 November 2013

Place: The Arts Centre, Warwick University
The Warwick Philosophy, Politics and Economics Forum is a distinguished speaker event and panel debate that discusses global issues with an interdisciplinary approach. Last year's event on the Eurozone Crisis won the award for Most Innovative Event at the RBS Enterprising Student Society Awards.
This year the Warwick University PPE Forum will hear from influential economists, authors and commentators from around the globe on the subject of the increasing economic and social impact of advancing technology, automation and globalisation of the global economy.
How can such progress be used to the benefit of all rather than just the elite?
Are we heading for a society with an even greater wealth gap?
