Robots and employment: Evidence from Japan, 1978-2017

Summary:
Daisuke Adachi, Daiji Kawaguchi and Yukiko Saito in this voxeu research: Previous studies have reported that the adoption of robotic technologies in industry reduces both employment and wages. This column examines the experience of Japan, which is unique due to early industry penetration and the fact that almost all the robots were domestically produced. Applying a different method from those in previous studies, it shows that the penetration of industrial robots has positive impacts on both employment and wages. This implies the potential for harmonisation of human work with future labour-replacement technology, such as artificial intelligence.
