Living the American dream - prosperity for everybody

Video interview with Prof. Roger Martin

For some time, Roger Martin has been thinking about the issue of prosperity – what drives it, who creates it, who benefits from it?  One of the aspects of that thinking is on the issue of good jobs and the future of work. While many others are focused on how service jobs are going to be disrupted and replaced by technology, Roger and the Martin Prosperity Institute are interested in what can be done to augment those jobs and tap into the full potential of the humans who are currently employed. 

We've asked Prof. Martin to answer 4 questions about these issues.
