How do job losses and demographic/cultural change due to automation and globalization affect political behavior and voting patterns in the U.S.?

Started Mar. 10, 2022

Abstract or project description

Recently, several highly globalized countries have experienced electoral victories for anti-globalization candidates and parties. Studies find that globalization creates distinct patterns of political behavior in winners and losers caused by different types of voter participation. Technological progress has made prosperity for humankind, yet it has always created winners and losers in the labor market. Groups in the labor market that have lost to technological change are more likely to opt for radical political change. This paper examines the effects of the economy, demography, and globalization on political behavior and voting patterns while looking specifically at the robust evidence in the 2016 US election cycle.
