education bubble // what good is higher education? investment? consumption? an insurance not to be left behind? then why is insurance so expensive *if it were insurance, then meritocracy claim is invalid bc you take out future earning to get a step higher on the ladder? competitive tournament to pay an entry fee (excluding people)?

Capitalism’s Crisis of Stagnation and Austerity
After the 2008-09 financial crisis, the hope was that a combination of economic recovery, inflation and austerity would shrink the debt mountain. This, though, was too optimistic. Growth has been below par, inflation subdued and austerity self-defeating. (“Global debt is the danger: beware the butterfly moment” Financial Times 6 January 2018)

It's £5000 per year and, from what I understand, not proposed to be an ongoing program. // evidence for UBI in small form and socialism (same start opportunities capital pathways for all - see book why socialism). mix, hybrid. enabling self-development responsibility future thinking and such. labour market not affected, there is still incentive to do rewarding labour both financiall and socially and personally. also the advancement of technological-scientific chapter of humanity. somebody has to invent space steel ( multi compound alloy for space). //&!

UK state should pay for housing, food, transport and internet, says report
‘Universal basic services’ costing about £42bn could be funded through higher taxes, say Jonathan Portes and academics //&! - Report proposes £10,000 for everyone under 55 - Most state benefits would be cut under the scheme. The RSA said the dividends would help steer people through the challenges of the 2020s. [...] "Without a real change in our thinking, neither tweaks to the welfare state nor getting people into work alone, when the link between hard work and fair pay has broken, will help working people meet the challenges ahead." [[...] space for skill acquisition, what UK system currently rules out completely ]]!!

The Gender Earnings Gap in the Gig Economy: Evidence from over a Million Rideshare Drivers
The growth of the "gig" economy generates worker flexibility that, some have speculated, will favor women. We explore one facet of the gig economy by examining labor supply choices and earnings among more than a million rideshare drivers on Uber in the U.S. Perhaps most surprisingly, we find that there is a roughly 7% gender earnings gap amongst drivers. The uniqueness of our data—knowing exactly the production and compensation functions—permits us to completely unpack the underlying determinants of the gender earnings gap. We find that the entire gender gap is caused by three factors: experience on the platform (learning-by-doing), preferences over where/when to work, and preferences for driving speed. This suggests that, as the gig economy grows and brings more flexibility in employment, women’s relatively high opportunity cost of non-paid-work time and gender-based preference differences can perpetuate a gender earnings gap even in the absence of discrimination
