Bullshit Jobs

Vom wahren Sinn der Arbeit

Ein Bullshit-Job ist eine Beschäftigungsform, die so völlig sinnlos, unnötig oder schädlich ist, dass selbst der Arbeitnehmer ihre Existenz nicht rechtfertigen kann. Es geht also gerade nicht um Jobs, die niemand machen will, sondern um solche, die eigentlich niemand braucht. Im Zuge des technischen Fortschritts sind zahlreiche Arbeitsplätze durch Maschinen ersetzt worden. Trotzdem ist die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit nicht etwa gesunken, sondern auf durchschnittlich 41,5 Wochenstunden gestiegen. Wie konnte es dazu kommen? David Graeber zeigt in seinem bahnbrechenden neuen Buch, warum immer mehr überflüssige Jobs entstehen und welche verheerenden Konsequenzen diese Entwicklung für unsere Gesellschaft hat. Im Jahr 1930 sagte der britische Ökonom John Maynard Keynes voraus, dass durch den technischen Fortschritt heute niemand mehr als 15 Stunden pro Woche arbeiten müsse. Fast ein Jahrhundert danach stellt David Graeber fest, dass die Gegenwart anders aussieht: Die durchschnittliche Arbeitszeit ist gestiegen und immer mehr Menschen üben Tätigkeiten aus, die unproduktiv und daher eigentlich überflüssig sind – als Immobilienmakler, Investmentbanker oder Unternehmensberater. Es sind Jobs, die keinen sinnvollen gesellschaftlichen Beitrag leisten. Es sind Bullshit-Jobs. Warum bezahlt eine Ökonomie solche Tätigkeiten, die sie nicht braucht? Wie ist es zu dieser Entwicklung gekommen? Und was können wir dagegen tun? David Graeber, einer der radikalsten politischen Denker unserer Zeit, geht diesem Phänomen auf den Grund. Ein packendes Plädoyer gegen die Ausweitung sinnloser Arbeit, die die moralischen Grundfesten unserer Gesellschaft ins Wanken bringt.

Capturing animal behaviour as it has rarely been seen before, this beautiful book is a must-have for photographers and all those with a passion for animals.

Julius, ein junger Psychiater, durchstreift die Straßen Manhattans, allein und ohne Ziel, stundenlang. Die Bewegung ist ein Ausgleich zur Arbeit, sie strukturiert seine Abende, seine Gedanken. Er lässt sich treiben, und während seine Schritte ihn tragen, denkt er an seine kürzlich zerbrochene Liebesbeziehung, seine Kindheit, seine Isolation in dieser Metropole voller Menschen. Fast unmerklich verzaubert sein Blick die Umgebung, die Stadt blättert sich vor ihm auf, offenbart die Spuren der Menschen, die früher hier lebten. Mit jeder Begegnung, jeder neuen Entdeckung gerät Julius tiefer hinein in die verborgene Gegenwart New Yorks – und schließlich in seine eigene, ihm fremd gewordene Vergangenheit. Für seinen faszinierenden Roman über einen Flaneur des 21. Jahrhunderts ist Teju Cole international von Presse und Lesern gefeiert und mit Autoren wie Sebald, Camus oder Naipaul verglichen worden. Getragen vom Fluss seiner bewegenden, klaren Sprache, erzählt »Open City« eine Geschichte von Erinnerung, Entwurzelung und der erlösenden Kraft der Kunst.
