Professor Paul Oyer, “The Gig Economy: Threats and Opportunities for Workers and Employers”

Technology has disrupted the labor market in important ways, both enabling greater productivity from remote workers and displacing workers altogether. These technical changes, as well as demographic changes in society, have driven the growth of the Gig Economy. Paul Oyer, the Fred H. Merrill Professor of Economics at the GSB, will present will focus on the economic advantages for workers and firms created by flexible work arrangements, as well as the public policy and regulatory reactions ahead, as well as how strategically-minded employers should react to the changing labor market. This Stanford GSB Fall Reunion/Alumni Weekend faculty presentation was recorded on October 27, 2017.
