- Race Against the Machine: How the Digital Revolution is Accelerating Innovation, Driving Productivity, and Irreversibly Transforming Employment and the Economy, by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee. Brynjolfsson and McAfee argue that technological innovation has changed the economic landscape in ways that are tough for the average worker.
