The future of work in a digital world - StarTribune.com - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Individuals often feel dragooned by computers, boxed in by a drop-down box. Despite the undisputed benefits of the digital milieu, some (many?) of us may nod and chuckle at a quip by the late Ogden Nash: “Progress might have been all right once, but it has gone on too long.” Any backlash, however, is muted.

What Do The Greek People Really Want? » Social Europe

What Do The Greek People Really Want? » Social Europe | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Whether the crushing of Syriza in Greece for daring to challenge the dominant narrative of the crisis would help or hinder the emergence of a movement for the long awaited political reform of Europe remains to be seen. The only ‘contradiction’ that remains in the eurozone is the utopian expectation that a monetary union will work under German hegemony without political union. ‘Muddling-through’ is no substitute for rational policymaking in the second largest economy in the world.

Why I’ve Changed My Mind About Grexit

Why I’ve Changed My Mind About Grexit | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Look, I’ve always been against Grexit – like Varoufakis. But now, as a result of the bailout agreement, Greece is a situation where the costs of staying in the euro have gone up so much that it’s possible to establish that there is a trade-off between going out – and facing all of the short-term costs of leaving the euro – versus staying in a circumstance where you are forced to renounce your sovereignty without getting any economic relief in exchange. I think that Tsipras has made up his mind on this issue and has concluded that the best thing for Greece is to stay in the euro, regardless of the costs. And it’s a respectable decision. But once you start assessing the economic logic and everything that has happened, you can’t but conclude that Greece has no future in the euro.
