You talk, we'll listen

2016 will be remembered for a rising tide of populism, nationalism and historically low levels of trust.

The 2017 Forum (6-7 June) will place a central emphasis on the need for policies winning back the confidence of those who feel left behind, fearful of the impact of globalisation, increasing migration flows, and the unprecedented speed of technological development.

Connecting the dots

How taxing robots could help bridge future revenue gaps

The development of artificial intelligence and of robots in particular is very likely to have a tremendous impact on the job market.

Robots are not only replacing industrial workers. T
oday robots become lawyers, doctors, bankers, social workers, nurses and even entertainers.

While the effective impact on labour remains controversial among economists, we believe that solutions have to be studied now.
