  • The Tyranny of merit

    I completely agree with the analysis. The exposition, however, has a thrown quickly together look. The Michael Young classic, for example, comes up, I think, three times, each time as though the earlier commentary had not been made. The text needs more stitching together. Merton’s concept of relative deprivation deserved mention. Also work on occupational prestige, such as The Prestige Squeeze, Chapter 8 (McGill-Queen’s U Press, 2009).

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Well written but possibly naive

    The problems are outlined effectively and make for interesting reading. The solutions proposed seem at times simplistic and inward looking insofar as they relate to amplifying the power of the worker. Globalisation has limited wage growth in the western world, but has lifted billions out of poverty in emerging economies. The author seems to be advocating 1930s protectionst solutions to a changed world which inevitably values knowledge workers more and more.

    Thanks for your feedback!
