The great transformation in the global labour market

The great transformation in the global labour market | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

The global expansion of higher education allows work traditionally reserved for the West to be done more cheaply and just as well in emerging nations, write Phillip Brown and Hugh Lauder. The result is that the wages and working conditions of western employees no longer set the global benchmark.

 

Brilliant article in Eurozine on the global war for labour which will put even more pressure on Western wages, working conditions and employment. Must-read piece.

Sustainability problems galore but precious few solutions

Sustainability problems galore but precious few solutions | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it
While the 250 high level participants at the University of Oxford's Resource conference are clear about why short termism is so dominant, there is no silver bullet that will save civilisation...

 

What seems to have been seriously lacking during this conference is the social dimension of the sustainability crisis. What will be collapse for some (the 99%) could be a bright "gated" green future for others (the 1%). The signs of a new class war we are seeing in the Great Depression will become more visible over time.
