Mongo e o emprego

Há anos que escrevo aqui sobre Mongo e sobre o seu impacte na economia, nas empresas, na criação do século XX - o emprego - e no poder tirânico-normando dos Estados.
Interessante como cada vez encontro mais artigos sobre o tema. Recordo o quanto critico as empresas de consultoria grandes que escondem dos seus clientes que esses clientes em Mongo podem não ter razão de existir.
Exemplos recentes que encontrei via Twitter (‏@GrahamHill):

"If the primary element of the old economy was the industrial unit, today the Industrial Age is giving way to the Individual Age, where it is the skills, talents, and labors of people that matter most. Now our economic policies have to start catching up.
the traditional ways to look at the statistics radically undercount the role of entrepreneurs in the twenty-first century. While the jobs they create for others are counted, the jobs they create for themselves—often while their firms are unincorporated—are usually not. [Moi ici: É verdade, descobri isso no INE há uns anos, por isso gostava de seguir como indicador a evolução do número de pessoas que descontam para a Segurança Social em vez do número de empregos criados com base em inquéritos. Há mais de 20 anos que não faço parte das estatísticas como estando empregado] According to Lowrey, a total of 48 million new jobs had been created by startup firms between 1997 and 2008. The remarkable part was that while 17 million of those jobs were positions that entrepreneurs were creating for others, 31 million were jobs entrepreneurs had created for themselves. Lowrey put it starkly: “Business creation is job creation.”
The differences between the economy of the nineteenth century and that of the twenty-first are too many to list, but today, as in Jefferson’s time of independent farmers and shopkeepers, it is individuals, not large conglomerations, that propel the economy. The number of Americans working for themselves is growing rapidly and most Americans no longer work full-time for someone else. Yet it is not just the self-employed or entrepreneurs who are part of this new world. Every worker is grappling with the Individual Age."

"it’s probably time to re-examine the whole idea of exactly what a job is and whether or not the fundamental construct is even viable going forward.
Let’s just skip to the answer: Jobs aren’t a viable construct going forward."[Moi ici: Interessante o autor citar Coase quando ainda ontem pensei nele por causa das plataformas e da fricção]

"The new design patterns create new opportunities. It is not about having a fixed job role as an employee or having tasks given to you as a contractor. The most inspiring and energizing future of work may be in solving problems and spotting opportunities in creative interaction with your customers."
