Does your job make a meaningful contribution to the world? In the spring of 2013, David Graeber asked this question in a playful, provocative essay titled âOn the Phenomenon of Bullshit Jobs.â It went viral. After a million online views in seventeen different languages, people all over the world are still debating the answer.
There are millions of peopleâHR consultants, communication coordinators, telemarketing researchers, corporate lawyersâwhose jobs are useless, and, tragically, they know it. These people are caught in bullshit jobs.
Graeber explores one of societyâs most vexing and deeply felt concerns, indicting among other villains a particular strain of finance capitalism that betrays ideals shared by thinkers ranging from Keynes to Lincoln. Bullshit Jobs gives individuals, corporations, and societies permission to undergo a shift in values, placing creative and caring work at the center of our culture. This book is for everyone who wants to turn their vocation back into an avocation.
