Humanity has always strived for survival, and throughout history, the nature of work has been based upon a need to solve societies sustenance problems, such as how to provide clean water and food, shelter, medication, education, trade, entertainment and defence.
Today, however, this is changing due to decentralisation and automation which is moving us toward a time of abundance. It is entirely conceivable that we would no longer need to tackle these basic sustenance issues in the same way and could do away with work altogether.
Therefore today on #AGICHAT we ask ‘Why do humans need work?’
