We present hypotheses about the relationships among automation risk, subjective concerns about technology, and policy preferences. We distinguish between preferences for compensatory policies versus “protectionist” policies to prevent such technological change. Using original survey data from Spain that captures multiple measures of automation risk, we find that most workers believe that the impact of new technologies in the workplace is positive, but there is a concerned minority. Technological concern varies with objective vulnerability, as workers at higher risk of technological displacement are more likely to negatively view technology. Both correlational and experimental analyses indicate little evidence that workers at risk or technologically concerned are more likely to demand compensation. Instead, workers concerned about technological displacement prefer policies to slow down technological change.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Gallego, Aina</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Gallego, Aina</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2021-11-22T12:51:13Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2021-11-22T12:51:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Kuo, Alexander</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Technological Risk and Policy Preferences</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Manzano, Dulce</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Manzano, Dulce</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
