Maria SnegovayaHow Uber’s Autonomous Cars Will Destroy 10 Million Jobs and Reshape the Economy by 2025
Good evening, podcast listeners! We have a great episode this week that’s sure to pique your interest.First, Maria Snegovaya stops by to discuss a facet of the Russia-Ukraine conflict that gets little coverage in the Western press, namely how Russians feel about the ordeal—and about President Vladimir Putin as well. By looking at poll numbers and coverage in the Russian press, she illuminates a side of the story you might not have yet seen.Then, host Richard Aldous speaks with Zack Kanter about recent analysis of his that predicts that autonomous cars could kill ten million jobs in the next ten years. He talks us through a number of the implications of this fast-approaching and very disruptive new technology, and balances that striking job loss number with some decidedly rosier statistics.Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and follow our host Richard Aldous @RJAldous, Maria Snegovaya @MSnegovaya, and Zack Kanter @zackkanter on Twitter.
