Introduction to the Human Economy


Bueno, Nicolas (2018). Introduction to the Human Economy. London School of Economics: Centre for the Study of Human Rights, London School of Economics.

Abstract

How to reduce the fear of unemployment, the risks associated with quitting an unfulfilling job or retiring earlier? Is there an economic model that could make us freer from traditional paid work and would work for all in both developing and developed countries? The discussion in this piece goes beyond the idea of a basic income. After presenting the historical origins of the right to work, influenced by the dogma of work, this piece introduces the terminology of the human economy. It questions the necessity of traditional paid work and discusses how it may be possible to achieve greater freedom from work whilst simultaneously securing a wide range of human benefits.
