Coming Issue of DDD

For some work means fulfillment, for the majority of us it is a means to survive. For some working means calculating on a computer, for others painting a wall, others plant food to eat.
And the paradox goes even further: Politicians all over the world ask for more jobs to guarantee an income for their citizens. At the same time companies and scientist invest in new technologies to become more productive and therefore save work.
Ever since the first introduction of machines, people are discussing, if work is still needed in the future, and how it will change. John Maynard Keynes in the 20th century expected his grandkids to be working 15 hours a week, while more skeptical voices feared mass unemployment and connected instability.
DDD issue #20 asks: What does work look like in the 21. century? And what does it mean for development cooperation?
