"Digitization moves fast, the one who stands still will fall behind"


Mårten Blix, IFN, explains in a new pod how come that he studies the effects of digitization on public finances. He compares the digitization with electrification and says that the big difference to previous technology leaps is the speed with which the digital reality comes to us. The one who is interested in the development and who keeps up with progress will benefit, he says, explaining that it is primarily not jobs as such that disappear with technical progress but the content in jobs.
