Inequality and the Challenge of Employment - New Economic Thinking - YouTube
intrinsic motivation, fairness, social animal - social comparison (is encoded into the brain) - status anxiety // self-interest mostly wins over ethics/moral values? // trust between principle & agent // org structure and inventive - ie bonus variable attracts more selfish people and risk takers // justice and fairness is critically important - not only in orgs but also democracies //&! Natural rate theory (equilibrium) - service sector jobs (unskilled manual labour jobs) w minimum wage and not higher. and flexible wages with no minimum wage (USA) create working poor/inequality. institutional change - economists are not just analysts they also affect policy makers (think tanks). // austerity hurts equality/social mobility = economic long-run damage to potential (thus output gap and productivity loss) - lack of supply of able workforce to create added value products & services. trickle-down not helping. //&! tax code unfair, lower capital gains tax than on earned (labour) income

BBC News - Why firms don't want you to be brilliant at your job
The last reason is the one that troubles me most. It may not be true that the partners are miles dimmer than the graduates. It is just that the two can't talk to each other, and so are blind to each other's strengths. It was always the case that the old and the young sometimes struggled to understand each other at work, but now it is more true than ever. [...] The graduate trainees joining this year will be among the first to have grown up on the internet, which means they communicate differently, think differently, acquire knowledge differently and do different things with it. They look at the partners and see slowness - the partners look at them and feel sad about their limited vocabulary, and wonder if they have ever read a book.

Manufacturing the Talent Shortage, by Dimas Guardado | Model View Culture
In order to fully realize the vision of a technical workforce that serves the needs of our diverse populations, we will need to ensure that all workers, regardless of their background, experience level, or motivation for entering the field, have access to the resources they need to achieve mastery in their profession. We need not wait for future generations to pass through Computer Science programs and coding bootcamps to construct the environments in which our current and future colleagues will find success. Organizations can take on practices that encourage mutual instruction, facilitate knowledge sharing, and produce safety mechanisms for problems that might arise from knowledge gaps. Code review, pair programming, coding standards, practice fields, retrospectives, testing, and monitoring are all practices that are well known to support these aims, and many can be used specifically with an eye towards developing and growing emerging talent.

If Schools Don't Change, Robots Will Bring On a 'Permanent Underclass': Report | Motherboard
via http://www.reddit.com/r/Futurology/comments/2ct2xs/if_schools_dont_change_robots_will_bring_on_a/ The respondents overwhelmingly agree that this lovely future where robots do the work and humans design the robots and everyone has leisure time and lots of money only exists in a fantasy future where the school systems pump out a shitload of Elon Musks and Sergey Brins—or, at the very least, people who can reliably work at the companies those guys own. [...] only the best-educated humans will compete with machines [...] and education systems [around the world] are still sitting students in rows & columns, teaching them to keep quiet and memorize what is told to them, preparing them for life in a 20th century factory.” // Rise of Service Jobs (dominance) in USA, even post-GFC. // ADD: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-leadership/wp/2014/08/07/are-robots-coming-for-your-job/

The female Pinterest engineer who pressed tech giants to air embarrassing diversity numbers - San Francisco Business Times
via https://twitter.com/mialoira/status/495027092367478784 || https://twitter.com/beltzner/status/494977730677440512 || https://twitter.com/triketora // In her experience, Chou said women engineers face significant, sometimes subtle, obstacles, starting with low performance expectations and less-than-plum assignments. "Pinterest was the first place where I felt like an engineer," said Chou. "It's hard to explain or articulate. When I came here, I was treated as an equal." Sometimes the discrimination is not subtle, like the time when a male engineer at a computer language conference asked her, "What do you do? Photocopy s---?" One major fact that advocates say must be addressed is that far fewer young women than men are learning computer science while in school. // http://www.codedoc.co/directors-thoughts/

oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith: The Changing Nature of Middle Class Work
The economy is changing in structural ways that affect not just the job market but the nature of work itself. If we ask, what is work?, the conventional answer is tasks that somebody will pay us to do. This is true, but it doesn't address why someone is willing to pay us. The answer is to create value. ... [ Skills, not Expertise. ] ...... As technology's ability to replace costly human labor moves from the factory floor to the service sector, the nature of middle class work is changing. [ IBM's company wide Pivot over +10 years from HW to Services and Software Company. With the accompanying downsizing. ] ... Jobs that can be learned in a few hours are prone to being replaced by machines. [...] The protected sectors beset by soaring costs (healthcare, higher education, major weaponry programs, finance, etc.) will undergo the creative destruction of technology-based productivity gains for the reason that they are already unaffordable, not just to households but to the nation.

Sweden: The New Laboratory for a Six-Hour Work Day - Uri Friedman - The Atlantic
0.) 4 day work week @ teamtreehouse / carsonified || 1.) lesson have time limits for projects, incremental goals to be achieved by X days. >> | | The bottom line is that productivity -- driven by technology and well-functioning markets -- drives wealth far more than hours worked. And very few jobs in developed economies nowadays are classic assembly-line positions, where working 20 percent longer will mechanically produce 20 percent more widgets. Psychology plays a role here too: At least 40 years of studies suggest that people work harder if you limit their time to complete a certain task. In some cases, working too hard can actually reduce output. Long working hours are also associated with ill health, which means lost labor in the long term, as well as higher medical costs for employers and government. + http://www.spiegel.de/karriere/ausland/schweden-goeteborg-will-sechs-stunden-arbeitstag-einfuehren-a-964791.html
