The 20th Century saw the creation of colossal wealth and exploding economies. But the days of industry providing mass employment are over. In the global economy, human resources are being replaced by technology. We are moving from a mass labor force to an elite corps concentrated in the knowledge sector. Will this change result in a sort of economic apartheid in which a third of humanity is made redundant? Will it mean the end of work as we know it? For Man Must Work raises crucial questions and suggests rethinking the future. The film shows how living and working conditions are deteriorating for many people. It also features experts such as Vivianne Forrester, author of The Economic Horror; Jeremy Rifkin, American economist and author of The End of Work; sociologist Ricardo Petrella; Ignacio Ramonet, editor-in-chief of Le Monde diplomatique; and Jacques Attali, former president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. They have no illusions, and they think the 21st Century is getting off to a very bad start. (52 minutes; 2001.)
