Will today´s occupational change transform affluent countries into enlarged middle-class societies? Or will the future consist of increasingly divided class societies? What are the effects of technology on the distribution of income? Is public procurement a substantial tool for prompting innovation? What would be the benefits of a shorter working week?

These and other topics will be discussed by Professor Gilles Saint-Paul (Paris School of Economics), Associate Professor Daniel Oesch (University of Lausanne), Head of Social Policy Anna Coote (New Economics Foundation) and Professor Rainer Kattel (Tallinn University of Technology).

Organized by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) with the support of Kalevi Sorsa Foundation.

The event is public and free of charge. Translation is available in English and Finnish.
