A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK ON THE FUTURE OF WORK
In this first number of The Future of Work in Latin America and the Caribbean, we introduce the topic from a general perspective. First, we explain the two great trends we believe will shape the labor market of the future: the technological tsunami and demographic aging. Their potential impacts in the labor market, as we discuss later, will be highly relevant for countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Lastly, we identify actions or strategies that can be activated to face this still uncertain scenario.
