Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Jobs are so "last century"...

Where exactly does the growing band of "self-employed" sit in all of this?

Certainly in Scotland we see a major statistical "black hole" in this area which I refer to as "micro-enterprise".

Networks of "self-employed", and maybe the re-emergence of something not a million miles away from "guilds" is what I see on the horizon...

It leads to what Marx called the "Abolition of Labour" ie people working WITH people rather than FOR them.
