O futuro do trabalho em Mongo - um pesadelo para caviares e industrialistas

As Uber têm o seu papel como arietes para derrubar as instituições que herdámos do Normalistão, mas as Uber não são o futuro do trabalho no Estranhistão.
Embora pareça conversa de político acredito que Mongo vai nos levar para aqui:
"Thankfully, the remedies are varied. Unlike the one-size-fits-all solutions of the Industrial Age, distributed prosperity in a digital age won’t scale infinitely. Rather, the solutions gain their traction and power by reconnecting people and rewriting business plans from the perspective of serving human stakeholders rather than abstracted share values.
Or retrieving the Papal concepts of “distributism” and “subsidiarity,” through which workers are required to own the means of production, and companies grow only as large as they need to in order to fulfill their purpose. Growth for growth’s sake is discouraged.
Many companies today – from ridesharing app Lazooz to Walmart competitor WinCo – are implementing worker-owned “platform cooperatives” to replace platform monopolies, allowing those contributing land or labor to an enterprise to earn an ownership share equal to those contributing just capital.
We must remember that employment may really just be an artifact of an old system [Moi ici: Interessante como os caviares detestam e criticam o auto-emprego] – the reactionary move of a bunch of nobles who were afraid for people to create value for themselves.
Once we’re no longer conflating the idea of “work” with that of “employment,” we are free to create value in ways unrecognized by the current growth-based market economy. [Moi ici: Recordar esta reflexão sobre o futuro do trabalho] We can teach, farm, feed, care for and even entertain one another. The work challenge is not a problem of scarcity but a spoil of riches. It’s time we learn to deal with it that way."
Trechos retirados de "Rebooting Work: Programming the Economy for People" com um sublinhado especial para:
"That we should now witness a renaissance in makers, crafts and artisanal production is no coincidence. The digital landscape encourages production from the periphery, lateral trade, and the distribution of wealth. Instead of depending on centralized institutions for sustenance, we begin to depend on one another."
