Automation and Unemployment: The Brazilian Case

Print Share
Technological innovations are enabling machines to further replace human labor. In this context, we estimate how many Brazilian jobs may be eliminated in one or two decades due to currently existing technologies, based on the widely cited Frey and Osborne (2017) study, which uses American US data. Our results indicate that 58.1% of Brazilian jobs may disappear in the next 10 to 20 years due to automation.
