Ideas. Cities. Social Innovation.

Love this piece:

We can and should argue over how we use the vehicle of collective worker power, but we should not think we can get by without it entirely. Unions exist in every democracy and the first thing every dictator does is crush them. That is not a coincidence. Our economic future lies in the empathy and interconnection exemplified in the story of Exodus. Affinity and solidarity are at the root of true ‘builder’ society. Labor groups with this as their driving tenet will be able to adapt to changing conditions as well as Moses did.
