Over the past decade, rapid advancements in digital technology have profoundly shaped the global economy and business landscape across all industries and sectors. This swell of technological advancement has raised concerns over its impact on income distribution and the growing monopolization by dominant tech players. How concerned should we be about the impact of technological change on society?
