Impact of Trade and Technology on Labour Market (Review of WTO Report «World Trade Report 2017. Trade, Technology and Jobs»)

2018. Vol. 13. No. 2. P. 214–220 [issue contents]

The review covers WTO World trade report 2017 aimed at comparing impact of main drivers of economic growth – trade and technology – on labour market. General labour market trends over the last 25 years are observed. It is shown that both trade and technology have positive effect on labour market however benefits are distributed unevenly and cause polarization. The report argues more profound impact of technological progress on employment structure alongside with less impact on number of jobs, whereas international trade increases significantly number of jobs of different skills and tasks. Because of skill- and routine-biased technical change and trade openness the report appeals to sound labour market government policy of three types to mitigate adverse effects for labour market.
