The freelance economy now accounts for over one in three people in the working population. That’s over a trillion dollars in the UK and US markets alone.  Over $1bn per annum is spent today online in hiring and paying for freelancers a figure which is projected to grow to $5bn within the next 3-5 years according to Industry analysts.

Most people associate the move to this new way of working as a drive to cut costs and be more flexible. All of which is true. However, I believe the biggest benefit of this new way of working is not in cost cutting, and I make the case here by drawing on our own experience at PeoplePerHour of eating our own cooking.

Ever since humans first daubed works of art on rock faces and in caves, there has been evidence of mankind’s attempts to understand the world in which it finds itself. For millennia this was achieved through myth, magic, religion, storytelling and art. The world was simplified, made manageable….

The connection between #GMO, #Gates, #Rockefeller, #Monsanto, #Syngenta and many others with only one goal: to control the food supply. Because the ones that control the food, control the population.

Consider how some days we wander into a wash of birdsong and are filled with the quiet music of the Universe. But no matter how we linger, the birdsong fades and we must enter our day. Other days, the birds seem to come out of nowhere, from behind buildings or under bridges, and their song covers…
