Well-read Red: Do They Owe Us A Living? 'Course they do, 'course they do!
Joe Clement reads Peter Frase's case against the assumption of wage-labor in both capitalism and market-socialist visions of a fucture economy. Frase argues for a universal basic income, explaining why it would more directly address the problems with wage-labor, make it more apparent what work needs to get done, and help dis-incentivize work only done for the sake of capital-accumulation.
Peter Frase is a sociology doctoral student at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York and an editor of Jacobin Magazine
