This is an interesting article from David Graeber in which he suggests that much of the “work” we do has no tangible benefit apart from making us feel that we’re part of the workforce. He maybe overstates the case a bit but who hasn’t spent time at work doing stuff that’s utterly pointless? Another good argument in favour of a universal basic income?
