Mårten Blix was on Wednesday invited to a lunch meeting organized by the Swedish Society of Financial Analysts (SFF) to talk about digitalization and the economy. Interest was great for the subject. The topic of his presentation was primarily about how digitalization affects the labor market. He spoke about the job polarization that is happening, that is, that middle-level jobs are disappearing while we can see an increase at the bottom and the top. He also defined gig work and gave a number of examples of different digital platforms and how they work.
