Summary of Bullshit Jobs: A Theory

Bullshit Jobs: A Theory by David Graeber: Conversation Starters

Bullshit jobs are spiritually and morally corrosive and make people extremely unhappy. If people are denied meaningful jobs that enable them to somehow contribute something to the world, they become mad or deeply miserable. They hold jobs that have no real usefulness except to justify careers. These jobs won’t be missed if they suddenly disappear in the workplace. How do you deal with bullshit jobs? How have a modern society and global capitalism come to create bullshit jobs?

Bullshit Jobs is an Amazon bestseller. It is the latest book of activist author David Graeber, also known for The Democracy Project which tells the story of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
