Robotization, artificial intelligence and digitalisation are changing the way companies organise their production tasks. However, all this impressive technological progress is failing to have a positive impact on productivity. In such a scenario, what policies should be implemented to boost growth in productivity?
Esade has issued a new edition of its Economic and Financial Report, prepared in collaboration with Banc Sabadell, which describes the policies that would foster greater productivity growth, some of which include the upgrading of human capital, adapting to the labour market of the future and economic return on education. The Economic and Financial Report also includes an analysis of the domestic and international economic panorama for 2020 and points to what trends will be guiding world markets over the course of the year currently underway.
The presentation will feature the participation of Matilde Mas, Professor of Foundations of Economic Analysis at the University of Valencia, and Juan Francisco Jimeno, adviser to the Directorate General of Economics, Statistics and Research at Banco de España and associate professor at Universidad de Alcalá, both of whom have contributed articles to the Economic and Financial Report. The talk between the two will be moderated by Jose Ignacio Conde-Ruiz, Director of the Economic and Financial Report and visiting lecturer at Esade.
