The Future of Labor, analyzes how after digitalization and artificial intelligence, human labor transitions to an immaterial form. Innovative thinking is becoming the most important productive force and economic resource for the valorization of capital. With the dawn of globalization, workers traveled for labor, moving from the countryside to the city and among cities across continents; they need hardly work to afford a house, a car, and other material goods because ownership is no longer the goal—they can rent a house, lease a car, and borrow from a closet in the cloud. Today, we might imagine a workforce without any geographical pattern but which is accessible remotely through digital means. This workforce no longer measures success through investment in materiality but in ways that relate more to intellectual property than physical possessions.
