In imagining Utopia 2016, we should possibly be thinking of a society in which there are sustainable and useful jobs for everyone who wanted to work. At present, we are sunk in a deep recession of the mind as much as the economy, with a cynical way of thinking that offers very little prospect of things getting better. It is hard to feel inspired by the current emergency economic policies, at least in Europe, which look like a return to the 1970s.Those that have jobs feel nothing of the pain; those that don't have work have little hope of improvement. There is a deep unfairness here that seems incompatible with any worthwhile vision of Utopia. Would it be possible to imagine a project to create one job at a time in which the RSA fellowship network played a role in imagining new jobs and assessing their quality as sustainable and worthwhile ways of working. How many jobs could be created by 2016? I would go for 500 - one job for every year since Utopia was published. Could it be done?
