Abstract:

"Film exploring the employment implications of the introduction of new technology ... Fears that as tasks are automated, workers could become economically marginalized and less able to afford manufactured goods. Thus automation, if thoughtlessly implemented, could diminish consumer demand and hurt the industries using it. The film wonders if business, employee, and consumer interests can be reconciled. Raising questions rather than answering them, The Machine encourages managers to be aware of broader issues as they embrace new technology."--Field guide to sponsored films, R. Prelinger.
