Frank Joyce talks in Linz about Detroit. Watch the video:
A better world is possible. So is a worse one. Which will we get? Finding the proper focus is itself a challenge.
... maybe we don?t need "jobs" at all. Maybe instead of scurrying around to create "jobs" as defined for the last 100 years we should start by taking a different tack altogether. As it always has been and as it always will be, there are plenty of things that need to be done -- growing food, moving people and goods around, teaching young people what they need to know, manufacturing various kinds of stuff, curing sick people and so on. But the 20th century "jobs" method of connecting those needs to individuals, families and communities has been seriously out of whack for quite some time.
