Thanks for the discussion so far. I wonder how maybe polical economy works around varieties of capitalism (e.g. Hall & Soskice, and Esping-Andersen on the welfare state) feature in Elizabeth’s work?

I have a question
Elizabeth Creed
01:09:39
Rutger Bregman’s in his book ‘Utopia for Realists’ discusses the ideas of ‘leisure – the 15 hour week’ and ‘universal basic income’ … he mentions how in 1969 President Nixon was on the verge of implementing such an idea in the US … how would you view these ideas in context of your work on the work ethic. Also, would you have any comment on unpaid work (especially with regard to care) and the work ethic.
Michael McGann

The recognition aspect of work is really important for a progressive social democratic work ethic, and very pertinent observation that it's there in the German Enlightenment. Hegel discusses it in relation to the dangers of the detailed division of labour and industrial capitalism.

Thank you for great discussion. All the authors together showed us that world can be better.
Caitriona Ni Dhuill
01:20:14
I have to leave but question is similar to Elizabeth Creed - you raise the question of how work would have to be organised in order to merit the commitment the work ethic demands of us. How does this question relate to the feminist analysis of capitalism’s reliance on unpaid labour (care, domestic, reproductive)? How can this kind of work access the recognition, rewards or potential for personal enhancement you associate with the progressive work ethic?

What was the name of the person she mentioned on “Deaths of despair”? Ann Keaton or something?
