Globalization, Robotics and the Future of Work "The Globotics Upheaval"

In a world of disruptors and “virtual” globalization, how should we prepare and respond to “future-proof” jobs and hard-won prosperity? Who will be the winners, and who the losers? 

What strategies may be implemented to harness the major economic forces shaping the global future, address a resultant rise in inequality, and populism, and focus on issues including the social value of work?
