        Launch of Xavier Oberson's book "Taxing Robots"

        The new book of Xavier Oberson "Taxing robots" has recently been published. This publication represents the first book exploring the potential for taxing robots. The increasing use of artificial intelligence within the workplace is likely to cause significant disruption in the labour market and, in turn, in the economy, notably due to a reduction in the number of taxable workers. In this innovative book, Xavier Oberson proposes taxing robots as a possible solution to the anticipated problem of declining tax revenues. The book, available in English, explores various models that could be applied to both the use of robots and to robots directly. For more information click here.
