THE MAGIC CONVEYOR BELT: Supply Chains, A.I. and the Future of Work

The latest book by MIT Professor Yossi Sheffi on global supply chains is an exploration of one of the most critical and complex systems of our modern economy. In The Magic Conveyor Belt, Professor Sheffi examines how supply chains have been affected by the societal and economic shocks of the early 2020s, demystifying their murky depths, twists, and turns. He also illustrates how supply chains actually worked well during the pandemic, why technology alone is not enough (despite being the key to sustainability), and how human and A.I. collaboration is the future.
