Fiche notion. "On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs" by David Graeber. In the year 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that, by century’s end, technology would have advanced sufficiently that countries like Great Britain or the United States would have achieved a 15-hour work week.

"On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs" by David Graeber

There’s every reason to believe he was right. In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshaled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. In order to achieve this, jobs have had to be created that are, effectively, pointless.

I’m going to reverse my normal convention when I have a cross post but have something to add. Here I first offer you a MacroBusiness post (which in the layered ways of the Web relies heavily on an article by David Graeber) and natter afterwards. By Leith van Onselen, Chief Economist of Macro Investor, Australia’s independent investment newsletter covering trades, stocks, property and yield.

Le phénomène des "emplois bidon". Dans une société où les poètes se métamorphosent en avocats d’affaires pour assurer les besoins matériels de leur famille et où l’inutilité de la plupart des emplois est criante au point d’être admise par ceux qui les occupent.

Femininity as a technology: some thoughts on hyperemployment - Cyborgology. Does digital technology, especially insofar as it is masculinized or seen as gender-neutral (which are generally the same thing: mankind, postman, etc.), resignify the gendered stigma conventionally attached to care work, affective work, and other sorts of feminized work that never quite counts as “real” labor?

Austerity and Economic Hyperbole. Chris Dillow thinks that talk of policies leading to disaster is overdone, which is surely true.

Austerity and Economic Hyperbole

However he also says “I don't think the claim that austerity has depressed economic activity is a counter-example here.” I disagree. Consider the UK first. The OBR thinks that GDP growth was 1% lower in both FY 2010/11 and FY 2011/12 as a result of austerity. There are good reasons for believing that is a conservative estimate, but let’s use those numbers for now. Historical Growth Rate of Lawyers in USA – Chart. David Graeber. David Rolfe Graeber (/ˈɡreɪbər/; born 12 February 1961) is an American anthropologist and anarchist activist, perhaps best known for his 2011 volume Debt: The First 5000 Years.

David Graeber

He is Professor of Anthropology at the London School of Economics.[1] His activism includes protests against the 3rd Summit of the Americas in Quebec City in 2001, and the 2002 World Economic Forum in New York City. Graeber was a leading figure in the Occupy Wall Street movement, and is sometimes credited with having coined the slogan, "We are the 99 percent".[4] Early life[edit] Graeber graduated from Phillips Academy Andover in 1978 and received his B.A. from the State University of New York at Purchase in 1984.

Academia[edit] In 1998, two years after completing his PhD, Graeber became assistant professor at Yale University, then became associate professor.[2] In May 2005, the Yale Anthropology department decided not to renew Graeber's contract, preventing consideration for tenure which was scheduled for 2008. Bullying, hollow men ... When I reflect on this issue of bullying one thought returns time and time again.

Bullying, hollow men ...

How is it that a person can take the time and dedication to drum another person out of their job, by (frequently) finding points of vulnerability, lying and destroying their reputation, invoking procedures against them, and all the other array of small mechanisms of power with which we are all now familiar with in academia and indeed society. The process whereby one individual is bullied by another has of course been written about by the wonderful (and deceased) Tim Field and others. This blog site also looks at changing institutional contexts. Yet sometime I wonder whether the constant focus on victimisation is depressing and locates one in a downward narrative of loss - loss of jobs, loss of security, loss of mental health, even, as this blog points out, loss of life. Further, I have also been forced to consider whether the focus on the term ‘bullying’ compounds this narrative?
