This paper examines the impact of technological change on the wage share of older workers, using data from 30 countries experiencing population aging.

It finds that recent technological developments centered on information and communication technology, software, and robots do not adversely affect older workers. This suggests that older workers may be more open to learning and adopting new technologies than widely presumed.
