Example text

People can see such rewards more clearly in the smaller companies (could see them most of all in the dotcoms) – but are the large organizations going to be agile and attractive enough? The loss of those with an entrepreneurial spirit from the large institutions could be the country’s gain. In the US, one in twelve people set up their own business. In the UK, it’s one in twenty. But rising. There is a good news story too to tell about work. It is not all blood, sweat and tears. As Richard Reeves points out, domestic workers are the most ‘‘satisfied’’ occupational group in the UK, whilst it’s quite possible for a lawyer, for example, to find his or her work empty, dull and demeaning to their personal principles and values.

They’ll still commute every day, to do the same work, in the same building, surrounded by the same people. And they may not be always happy with their lot. Robert M. Worcester, the chairman of the research organisation MORI, suggests that there are some worrying downsides to the e-revolution, and lists a series of resentments building up as the information age reaches its maturity: » » » » » » » » » young against old poor against rich rural against urban scientists against the people producers against the consumers people against the institutions central government against local government everybody against big business the globalized (many) against the globalizers (few).

All this attention we’re paying to someone else, something else, somewhere else. It’s like watching someone else take a call on the train at night going home – they always seem to have much more fascinating mates on the other end of the line than ours. Do you know what I mean? I once read someone describing what I’m talking about here a lot better than I am doing now: they said we were in danger of becoming tourists in our own lives. . How am I doing? Dunno. Everything’s moving so fast, changing so quickly that I lose track of what I’m being compared against.
