The sessions will take place tomorrow Tuesday 19th and the next Tuesday 2nd of April from 18:30 to 20:30 hours at Building I of ESADE- classroom 029- (Av. Pedralbes 60-62, Barcelona). Among other issues it will be analysed if the job destruction derived from the technical change will generate increases in productivity and in collective wealth and how to manage the transaction for displaced people form their gainful occupations.
