"Globalisation for me seems to be not first-order harm and I find it very hard not to think about the billion people who have been dragged out of poverty as a result. I don’t think that globalisation is anywhere near the threat that robots are.”

- Angus Deaton - Senior Scholar and Professor at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and the Economics Department at Princton University.

Quoted in Financial Times print edition December 24, 2016 "Lunch with the FT Angus Deaton" by Shawn Donnan.
