    Left behind: How disruptive technology may choose society’s winners and losers

    Wednesday, May 29, 2019

    New platforms like home- and ride-sharing services often are praised for leveling the playing field, cutting out the middle man and boosting the economy.

  • Business Education in a ‘Jetsons’ World: Krannert Professor Karthik Kannan on how we can help prepare students for the new-collar economy shift

    Monday, January 7, 2019

    This economy is almost exactly the one we were promised. Decades ago, when we imagined the future, the world looked like the one depicted in “The Jetsons,” where people commuted to work in flying cars and managed robots from their desks by hitting an array of multi-hued buttons. Admittedly, we don’t yet have flying cars (though we may soon have autonomous ones). But the Jetsons-esque world we dreamt of is finally being realized.
