Fascinating thoughts from a great small business owner.
This blog post by Jesse Jacobs is a good continuation of the conversations we’re now having on Talking Story about a) Jobs of Merit, and b) Working in the Knowledge Economy. He mentions Maslow’s Pyramid, which we also took another look at yesterday:
The biggest challenge I see with the current economy and the “job crisis” is that without jobs, we have a society without meaning. And legions of people without meaning is both sad and scary.
In terms of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, no jobs and no meaning stresses both the top of the pyramid, where people are looking to make a difference with their lives, and the bottom of the pyramid,where survival needs go challenged with food and shelter. The whole “needs” pyramid starts to get pretty wobbly.
