On today’s show we are looking at a new report on The Evolution of Work from Home published by three authors: Jose Maria Barrero, from the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México Nicholas Bloom University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Hoover Institution & Steven J. Davis from Stanford University
This 29 page paper has been in circulation since July as a working paper and was finally published yesterday by the Bureau of Economic Research.
This piece of research shows us how work from home has changed not just since the pandemic, but over a longer time period. Working from home has been rising in the United States for many decades, driven by the continuing improvements in technology that enables remote working.
