Change in non-routine jobs

In research published in the Journal of Development Economics, Laurie Reijnders and Gaaitzen de Vries analyse the worldwide increase in the share of non-routine jobs. They find that, in particular, technology has led to a global increase in this share, while the opportunity to offshore activities is less important. Moreover, the effect of technology and offshoring work in the same direction for advanced countries but in opposite directions for emerging economies.
