New Data on Drivers of Income Insecurity

I’ve been interested in the drivers and ramifications of income insecurity for some time. Its one of the most significant problems of our age. It’s tentacles affect all areas of life and society.

A core narrative underpinning workforce casualisation has been the accelerating pace of technological innovation. Robots/Gig Economy/AI etc. Recent research from The Learnings & Works Institute show this is not necessarily the case.

The same research does however confirm another key narrative about insecure work, namely it is a drain on productivity.
