Automation isn’t a threat to our economy

Will robots take my job?’ is a frequently asked question today. So frequent, in fact, that there is even a website – willrobotstakemyjob.com – attempting to answer precisely that question with a statistically accurate calculation.

EU-nationalism is a monster of our own creation

Whenever there is a crisis, there are a num- ber of ways to deal with it. It stands to reason, in most situations, that an organisation re-evaluates the way it has been conducting itself, which may or may not have lead to the crisis in the first place. Brexit is such an opportunity for the […]

La généralisation de l’automatisation s’accompagne (de manière prévisible) d’une peur accrue de ses effets. Un certain nombre de politiciens préconise même de taxer les robots, afin de compenser la perte d’emplois concomitante. Cependant, la réalité montre que l’inquiétude est infondée.

An illustration of Europe’s anti-smoking obsession

The European Union does everything it can to reduce the number of smokers in its member states. What appears to be a laudable goal, has turned into a fact-free obsession in recent years.
