  • The Future of Work

    The global economy is undergoing an unprecedented transformation, driven by new technologies and increasing globalization. Roughly one-third of Americans are now working independently—from well-paid contract workers to temp workers struggling to make ends meet—and the numbers are expected to climb in the coming decade, as artificial intelligence and advanced robotics disrupt more and more industries. What can be done now to ensure all independent workers thrive in the years ahead?

  • The Future of Sharing

    The Future of Sharing project sets out to answer the key question: How can we make the sharing economy work for everyone? We hold deep conversations with a wide range of thought leaders who understand the sharing economy and its potential, as well as people who run and understand cities. We don’t shy from looking hard at the challenges in transitioning to this new system, but we mostly focus on finding win-win solutions that will make better cities. We then take the insights from the conversations and make media that can spread the best ideas.
