Conceptualizing future labour markets

Abstract

© W. S. Maney & Son Ltd 2014. An enquiry into what future labour markets might look like is, necessarily, an enquiry into what future labour market institutions might look like. Any such enquiry requires a conceptual apparatus (i.e. theory, metatheory, and model) capable of dealing with labour markets and institutions. The conceptual apparatus of orthodox labour economics is incapable of this. An alternative conceptual apparatus, the 'socio-economics of labour markets', augmented with critical realist metatheory, is capable of dealing with future labour markets. This claim is demonstrated via the example of future labour markets based on Basic Income.
