Tony Kieme Posted over 2 years ago Wingham Rowan: A new kind of job market Henry Ford introduced the industrial production-pipeline that streamlined the workforce (despite the work conditions and child-laborers). Meanwhile, the administration went from a warehouse of gridded desks towards cubicles (invented by Henry Miller), a radical idea at the time. The internet and wireless communications-technologies then transformed business into an allusion of independence, an almost autonomous work-ethic. Today, the employee is as important as going viral for a moment, or as important as an appliance. The creation of jobs can stem from a civic-need, a social-need, or a capital-need. A civic-need can be very communistic in that the protocol for access is universal in design; perhaps a lottery or distance may determine the timing of employment for those involved. A social-need can be very socialistic in that the creation of jobs is an institutionalized affair -- a school or court or fire-station for example. Finally, a capital-need is very capitalistic in that the cultivation of further jobs (than the initial business) is dependent on the profit of the business. I will call this triptych of needs a Trilateral Stewardship for the sake of discussion. A Trilateral Stewardship would explain how a dynamic job-market can function. A city would have certain responsibilities to provide employment in mostly civic-needs and social-needs, sometimes choosing capital-needs for risky gambles. (The advertising billboards of a city would be a lucrative source of income.) The city is in effect responsible for the employment of every inhabitant, newly born or arrived or graduated. The risks taken by individuals and other businesses are only options, likened to elective-classes in college, unnecessary for sustainability, but duly desired by many individuals. Every city in the world should function this way, demanding a certain legality to residing in the city as would be expected, a visa-esque policy. I imagine that the job market is much more than Keynesian.
