Productive Equity II Roundtable 


In May 2019, Brookings Institution and the Chumir Foundation for Ethics in Leadership published a report titled "Productive Equity: Technology and the Twin Challenges of Reviving Productivity and Reducing Inequality." This report (PE I) shows both a decline in productivity and an increase in inequality. 

"Productive Equity II" (PE II) was proposed by the Chumir Foundation in conjunction with WAPS to examine the role of technology in these phenomena. 

This roundtable was put forward in order to orient PE II and to determine a direction to be taken and questions to be answered. For such a global study, technologists from the Asia time zones and the Pacific time zones were invited to participate.





With PE I as background for the PE II participants, five common themes were extracted from their comments in the PE II Roundtable, namely Culture of Technologists, Digital Transformation, Scale, Government Policies, and Productivity.
