Your Call: The fight against a jobless economy and a citizenless democracy

May 9, 2016

  On the May 10th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with professor Robert McChesney the coauthor of the new book “People Get Ready: The Fight Against a Jobless Economy and a Citizenless Democracy.”

He argues that the technological revolution will result in automation, declining wages, and expanding poverty. He believes that humanity is on the verge of its darkest hour or its greatest moment. What are the solutions and who are the winners and losers of the digital revolution? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Robert McChesney, professor of communications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
