Machines doing more of the work, and humans having more leisure, is a cause for optimism about the future of work, rather than despair. Managing the transition to a more leisure-abundant life will require thoughtful work from all parts of society. But this is a challenge we can meet if we put our minds to it. That is the message from Nobel Prize winning Economist Professor Sir Chrisopher Pissarides. Along with the future of work Sir Christopher considers the outlook for the Eurozone, Brexit, the absence of wage inflation, and more.
