As with previous technological revolutions, innovations in the online world have triggered transformations in the labor market and the economy.

- Is the Internet a net creator of jobs?
- How are job profiles changed by the digital economy?
- What are the impacts on income distribution? Is it a winner-takes-all tournament?
- What models can facilitate adjustment without slowing innovation?
