This book presents a bold, new invention - the Computerized Job Market (CJM) - that could, in the future, come to replace the labor market as we and our forebears have known it since the industrial revolution. James Cooke Brown, who also invented the popular board game Careers, first introduced CJM's in his science fiction book The Troika Incident. The Job Market of the Future is written in a non-academic, non-technical style and is set in the not-too-distant future - in a world that we will very likely see if the present course of unhindered, reckless "globalization" continues. The author presents the case for his CJM model; how it will be constructed; the built in safeguards for both individuals and society; how it will operate for the end-user; and what the long- and short-term economic, social, and political benefits will be. Ultimately, this book is not about problems or policy issues; it is about finding a permanent answer to the most important long-term problem that faces everyone on Earth: finding and keeping a quality job with a "living wage."

From Booklist:

Brown, holder of a doctorate in sociology, mathematical statistics, and philosophy, presents the structural solution he has created to solve a broad array of economic problems. His job-market thesis is built on the nineteenth-century theories of Edward Bellamy, who devised an economic system--which lacked the technology to support it--in which workers would not actually be hired by employers but would select their jobs from a public pool of jobs made available to them from the work needed by employers. The author demonstrates how worker-chosen jobs are possible in today's computerized world, and he recommends creating a prototype to prove that Bellamy's invention, with the author's input, works. Other benefits of Brown's plan include the elimination of recessions and depressions and containment of the worldwide population explosion. In spite of his many critics, the author offers his program as a practical answer for employees as they search to find and keep a quality job with a living wage. Mary Whaley
