Inhaltsangabe

From best-selling writer David Graeber, a powerful argument against the rise of meaningless, unfulfilling jobs and their consequences.

Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled “On the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs”. It went viral. After a million online views in 17 different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer. 

There are millions of people - HR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyers - whose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs. Graeber explores one of society’s most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. 

Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation.

IT Made me think....

C. Ragland was good as always. What was best about the Book ? It was not the collection of BS Jobs (which was faszinating) , but the end of the book. Imagine a world without all these useless bullshit jobs. the book made me think about it, rather than giving a complete Picture. thanks for the impuls. (please excuse the grammer of my writing, I am not a native) Danke für den Denkanstoß.

A refreshing study of why we even bother to work

Every bit of the facts rundown in this book is, unfortunately, true. The book is a great read. What I'm not sure about is the idea that the universal basic income would make the world a substantially better place. If we didn’t have to work at all, the 80% of idiots would make the 20% of progress-loving people unbearable. It is to be feared that, once the Basic Universal Income sets in, the percentage of idiocy would surge to 99%, and I only say 99% instead of 100% because I am a notorious optimist. Nonetheless, I recommend everyone to read it and to have a hopefully meaningful discussion.

Langatmige Geschichte

Die Kernidee des Buches ist durchaus interessant. Leider wird die Story künstlich in die Länge gezogen, ohne dass wirklich Mehrwert geboten wird. Das Buch hätte sicher um die Hälfte gekürzt werden können - und das ohne Informationsverlust.
