"David Graeber is an American anthropologist who teaches at the London
School of Economics. He is the author of the classic “Debt: The First
Five Thousand Years” and played an important role in the launching of
Occupy Wall Street. Last year, he wrote a much-discussed essay asking
what happened to society’s old promise of more leisure time for workers;
for the tasks that have come to occupy the hours that were once promised
to be ours, Graeber invented the delicate and slightly obscure label,
“bullshit jobs.”"

Interesting article on the nature of work.
