Do people even have jobs that contribute to the GDP anymore. Apart from make work jobs what the hell do people do anymore.

the main bubble i'm in is not being an online shopper. i simply have 0 clue how much time my neighbors and work colleagues spend on Amazon.com. it's unfathomable.

i do get the impression a lot more folks don't care to have typical (8-5, mon-fri) relationships with paid labor. but i am convinced this is a regional phenomenon and not necessarily informed by changing work-life dynamics.

increased productivity results neither in a corresponding increase in social wealth nor in a corresponding decrease in labour time, but in the constitution of a new base level of productivity
