Literature Review: Jobs problem for Internet

This “Ten Problems for Internet in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. software, 
  2. privacy,
  3. governance,
  4. wellbeing,
  5. jobs,
  6. commerce,
  7. infrastructure,
  8. blockchain,
  9. education,
  10. security.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

5 Jobs

THE PROBLEM — The world of work is changing dramatically, already causing significant disruption in patterns of jobs. Faced with the emergence and rapid dissemination of an internet-based digital economy, employment forms and patterns are changing accordingly. Given the fundamental role played by platforms, it is crucial we adopt a more nuanced understanding of digital technologies, gig economy and crowdwork.

CONCLUSIONS — Trends away from routine jobs towards non-routine manual and especially cognitive skill work are already apparent. The organizational principles and functional patterns of employment have profoundly transformed in the epoch of digitalization. Faster Internet prompts more self-employment and lower unemployment. However, excessive job autonomy can have a negative impact on employees, and there is a “too-much-of-a-good-thing” effect. Some of the key attributes of crowdwork travel beyond digital platforms as capitalism continues its quest for new ways of extracting surplus value. tech startups are increasingly clustered in large global cities and metro areas. In the era of “Internet +”, the employment and entrepreneurship opportunities of ordinary college students have increased. Digital technology adoption has the potential to transform the nature of work for all Africans. Internet adoption increases female labor force participation but has no effect on male labor force participation. A greater incidence of email use in locations increases the number of non-production and unskilled production workers in manufactures.
