Daniel Susskind

A fellow in economics at Balliol College, Oxford, Daniel Susskind previously worked as a UK policy adviser for the Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit in the Cabinet Office. He is the author of A World Without Work and a coauthor, with Richard Susskind, of The Future of the Professions. “I think I’m probably the modern-day anti-Malthus,” he told an interviewer in 2020. “We have come…very close to solving the fundamental economic problem that has plagued our ancestors for centuries. And so in, a funny way, I see technological unemployment as a symptom of that success.”
