Is the digital revolution a job-destroyer or a job-creator? How will it change traditional occupational images? In an interview to the IAB-Forum magazine, IAB Director Joachim Möller discusses these questions and argues for a “flexibility compromise” between the social partners as a strategy to organize the consequences of technological change on the labour market in a productive and socially acceptable manner.

This video is the fifth interview of a series of interviews with Joachim Möller that address selected aspects of the labour market in Germany (the German job miracle; the German minimum wage; refugees and migration; the dual apprenticeship system; active labour market policy; and the digital revolution).

The interview was conducted by Hannah Ormerod.
