IMF Urges Stronger Social Safety Nets to Maximize AI’s Benefit

International Monetary Fund
– IMF warns of job losses and inequality from generative AI
– Fiscal policy crucial for equal distribution of AI benefits
– Upgrades to social protection and tax systems necessary

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has sounded the alarm on the potential negative effects of generative AI on jobs and wealth inequality. To mitigate these effects, the IMF recommends implementing stronger social safety nets and fiscal policies.

Accordingly, governments should consider new measures to raise revenue and support workers who lose their jobs due to AI. This includes investing in sector-based training to prepare workers for the jobs of the future.

The IMF emphasizes that fiscal policy has a major role to play in ensuring a more equal distribution of AI’s benefits. However, this requires significant upgrades to social protection and tax systems worldwide.

As the IMF notes, “Fiscal policy has a major role to play in supporting a more equal distribution of gains and opportunities from generative AI.” They argue that more generous unemployment insurance and investment in sector-based training are necessary to prepare workers for the changing job market.

The IMF advises against a special tax on AI products, instead suggesting that corporate tax breaks that encourage job displacement should be reconsidered. Strengthening taxes on capital income could help offset rising wealth inequality.
