New Evidence on the Link between Technological Change and Employment: Extending the Neo-Classical Paradigm
A burgeoning literature on "skill-biased" technological change (SBTC) reveals that investment in information and communications technology (ICT) is associated with workforce reductions and an increase in the demand for highly educated workers. Based on extensions of the neo-classical paradigm, researchers have also come to realize that the implementation of a new technology is often accompanied by organizational change. Two edited volumes by Marco Vivarelli, Mario Pianta, Pascal Petit, and Luc Soete provide important new evidence on the policy implications of these trends. We review these volumes and other recent studies and also provide new evidence on the relationship between technological change and organizational change, based on a comprehensive dataset of Italian manufacturing firms.
