There’s so much to protest against. How to keep up? | Barbara Ellen | Opinion | The Guardian
On the eve of a House of Lords vote, more than 30 charities, including Mencap, Parkinson’s UK and Mind, plus peers, including Paralympian Tanni Grey-Thompson, have criticised the cuts (which would in effect reduce ESA to ordinary jobseeker level), arguing that they would put the disabled under increased pressure and make it harder for them to find work. [...] This is what matters at present – however dutifully the Labour party opposes cuts, the Tories clearly feel “unopposed” and thus free to continue unleashing their bombardments. People like me may also owe the shamed, battered Liberal Democrats an apology – during their time in coalition perhaps they did put the brakes on the worst excesses of Tory policy.

How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

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
