MTurk and the Entrepreneurial Society

This story from Harvard Business Review talks about Peter Drucker’s vision of the entrepreneurial society and argues that MTurk is helping us get there since it helps people find work to suit their skills and schedules. (Schedules yes.)

The valuable part is the discussion on obstacles, where this study states:

“Employment law says you are either an employee or a freelancer. But this is an outdated distinction, and it is creating all sorts of problems for companies like Uber and Airbnb, whose drivers and hosts are a bit of both. Some observers have argued that we need a hybrid “third way,” designed for today’s gig economy.”
