Robots are coming for your job. That might not be bad news
The problem with automation isn’t technology. The problem is capitalism. // [ Deflationary pressure, 3bn people in developing world and frontier markets unemployed, waiting to join workforce. ] [ who buys the gadgets and widgets when half the world is unemployed ] // This time, as Martin Ford argues in Rise of The Robots, education and upscaling won’t help us. There will simply be fewer jobs to go around, as everything from accountancy to journalism will be done faster, cheaper and more efficiently by machines. The result, as Jerry Kaplan agrees in Humans Need Not Apply, is that billions will be left destitute – unless we radically rethink our way of keeping people fed.

Amazon's Culture: Toxic or Just Tough? by The Jay & Farhad Show
Hello! This week, Farhad Manjoo (New York Times) and Jay Yarow (Business Insider) are joined by special guest Jodi Kantor (New York Times) to discuss her polarizing article about Amazon's culture. // // how technology functions in the workplace - efficiency, quantified self << the feedback tool you can always use, what ever your state of emotion, gripe, stick, bias, prejudice, ... feudal Darwinism creeps into knowledge worker, white-collar and blue-collar workers, MBA's and PhD's. [...] contributes to gender inequality (women with the back on their wall, leave or get started and forget about family & kids, life.) [...] brutal years are NOT Tour of Duty - Reid Hoffman The Alliance. // PS: Reed Hastings (Netflix) Culture document transpires that it is expected to contribute, even if it doesn't spell it out. Netflix also had to fight and overcome as much as Amazon! Proves again that internal & external environment a company finds itself affects its values & culture inevitable [Thesis].

Who wins from workplace flexibility? - BBC News
It has to do with something economists call 'the backward bending supply curve of labour.' As with much of economics, this gymnastic-sounding graphic concept is much simpler than it sounds. On the y-axis is pay: on the x-axis hours worked. At low levels of pay, people have to work long hours to make ends meet. Pay them more, give them more security, and they want more time to themselves. Pay them lots, and they offer fewer hours because they want more leisure time, and the opportunity to spend all that moolah. That's where the curve bends back. [...] A big problem with depending on freelance workers or overtime is that you can't be sure the staff are available when vital services need them. And in a sellers' market for working hours, the trains and the health service find themselves in trouble. ... Workforce planning

The way we're working isn't working: Tony Schwartz at TEDxMidwest - YouTube
time is a finite resource, non-renewable. computers are only limited by electricity and # of transistors. // Time is finite. Tony Schwarz debunks the myth that "We are meant to run like computers; at high speeds for long periods of time". He eloquently outlines how the reality of renewing our personal energy is just as important as expending it. This discipline grants value to rest which ultimately allows us to manage more skillful lives. // intrinsic motivation; purpose, mastery, autonomy. // honesty without compassion is cruelty. tenacity without flexibility is congeals interregidity. courage without prudence becomes recklessness. // need for certainty. // software/technology is running our life's. // renewal of personal energy! aka recovery to sustain high performance >> 6-hour work day, 4-day work week //

Beförderungen im Beruf machen nicht glücklicher - SPIEGEL ONLINE
eine australische Studie: Ein Aufstieg im Beruf macht weder glücklicher noch gesünder. Auf lange Sicht leidet die Psyche sogar.

Spätestens nach drei Jahren war die Karriere-Euphorie dann komplett verflogen: Trotz mehr Geld und höherem Status gingen Jobzufriedenheit, gefühlte Arbeitsplatzsicherheit und das Empfinden angemessener Bezahlung wieder auf das Niveau vor der Beförderung zurück.

Die psychische Gesundheit litt jedoch dauerhaft unter der gestiegenen beruflichen Belastung. Sehr verbreitet waren infolgedessen Nervosität und Unruhezustände. Trotz dauerhaften Einkommenssteigerungen und höherem sozialen Status überwiegen demnach langfristig die negativen Effekte von vermehrtem Stress und längeren Arbeitszeiten.
