David Autor of MIT talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his research on the hollowing out of the occupational distribution in the US and Europe over the past 30 years: high- and low-wage occupations have been expanding rapidly and hiring younger workers, while routine middle-skill occupations have been shrinking and ‘getting old’. The interview was recorded at the American Economic Association meetings in San Francisco in January 2009.
