The trolley problem and ethics of driverless cars

Geoff Riley

23rd September 2015

A superb five minute video from David Grossman that aired on BBC Newsnight about some of the ethical issues connected to the rise of autonomous vehicles (or driverless cars). He recreates the classical ethical dilemma known as the Trolley Problem and this on its own will be a great stimulus for discussion in your economics classroom or tutorial group session.
