Product description


Avent is a fluent writer who takes complex ideas and works them, like Plasticine, into vivid models ... The Wealth of Humans stands favourable comparison with Capital in the 21st Century by Thomas Piketty (Martin Vander Weyer Telegraph)

Ryan Avent is a superb writer ... highly readable and lively (Thomas Picketty)

Compelling and troubling... In popular commentary on the future, there is an unhelpful view that one day each of us will turn up at work and find a robot sitting in our chairs. Avent's alternative account, of a slow but persistent decline in the importance of work and a fractious search for a new political settlement, is immeasurably more plausible (Daniel Susskind Sunday Times)

In the world of economics, Ryan Avent is simply one of the sharpest and most intelligent writers around. Nobody is better placed to tell us how technology is shaping our economy and our lives (Tim Harford)

An important argument on a subject that will shape the coming decades (Duncan Weldon Prospect)

From the Back Cover

To work is human, yet soon it may not be. Huge swathes of the job market are becoming automated, while millions of 'non-jobs' are being created. What does the future hold? Ryan Avent offers the first clear explanation of the state we're in - and how we might get out of it.

'A superb writer' Thomas Piketty

'A pleasure to read. This is an important argument on a subject that will shape the coming decades' Duncan Weldon, Prospect

'Ryan Avent is one of the sharpest and most intelligent writers around' Tim Harford

'Intelligent, honest and clear ... balanced and bold' Christopher Caldwell, Literary Review
