Artificial intelligence: promises and risks to the macroeconomy

How is artificial intelligence impacting economies, political environments, financial markets and misinformation? What are the policy challenges and how can governments work to counter them?

Julian Jacobs, senior economist at OMFIF, interviews Darrell West, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, about the promises and perils that may emerge as countries embrace AI. They discuss the implications of AI on economic inequality, productivity growth, central banking, financial stability and misinformation amid the rise of large language models.

Darrell West is a senior fellow for Brookings’ Center for Technology Innovation within the Governance Studies programme and co-editor-in-chief of TechTank. West is the former vice president and director of Governance Studies. His research focuses on AI, robotics and the future of work. West is also director of the John Hazen White Manufacturing Initiative. Prior to joining Brookings, he was the John Hazen White Professor of Political Science and Public Policy and director of the Taubman Center for Public Policy at Brown University.
