Is technology raising demand for skills, or are skills raising demand for technology?
In “Is Technology Raising Demand for Skills, or Are Skills Raising Demand for Technology?” Ethan Lewis describes a common view that recent technological advances, such as the introduction of computers, have rendered obsolete some occupations that require less skill and have increased businesses’ desire to hire skilled workers. But what if the rising skills of U.S. workers are inducing businesses to adopt—and maybe even develop — new technologies that require workers who are more skilled? Lewis assesses this alternative view by examining the evidence that increasing skills are driving technological change.
