Really interesting article about the "sharing economy" and the problems inherent in underpaying people to do their work while shifting the economic risk from the employer to the employee.

"But perhaps the real issue is that the sharing economy reverses progress in labor markets. Whatever the gains from increased efficiency, it recreates a Dickensian world for a part of the population. Formal employment protects labor from exploitation and deprivation to varying degrees. The sharing economy transfers the risk of economic uncertainty from the employer to the employee with potentially tragic consequences.

Most important, the underlying economic premise is false. Consumption constitutes 60%-70% of activity in advanced economies. In 1914, Henry Ford doubled his workers’ pay from $2.34 to $5 a day, recognizing that paying people more would enable them to afford the cars they were producing. Reduction of income levels and employment security ultimately reduces consumption and economic activity, impoverishing most within societies."

I'm super proud of this kid. The larger he gets and the more sophisticated his speech, the more I learn about the unique challenges he faces and the persistent and determined attitude he has to face life everyday. I love him very much. Hes awesome and i love him just as he is.
