We live in an age when technological innovations streamline efficiency and begin to replace the need for human labor. Toward a Future Beyond Employment surveys our shifting economic landscape and considers how our very notions of human work and life may need to evolve. In this ground-breaking new work, Cangul proposes that traditional work is losing its conventional importance for people in Western economies, who are moving toward a new sociological paradigm. As emerging economies become more advanced, the advanced economies face a new stage of their own, a post-employment society that works less and has more time. Based on these conclusions, Toward a Future Beyond Employment proposes an alternative to the overriding narrative about job creation, one that argues for the expansion of existing mechanisms that give people more choice on how they spend their time.
