   schema:description "What happens when work is no longer a physical place but a state of mind? When the trappings that have defined the economy as we knew it are stripped away and we start from the bare essence of what it means to make a living? As a new work environment emerges, workers from all walks of life, from freelancers in corner coffee shops to CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, are creating a new reality and prosperity. Companies are increasingly outsourcing, crowdsourcing, and implementing flexible schedules. From the recently graduated to the recently laid off, the rise in non-traditional employment calls for a new infrastructure, strategy, and attitude from both employees and the companies they work for. We need to rethink our economy in a way that allows us to take advantage of technology and changing personal priorities and still sustain face-to-face interactions. The Naked Economy is poised to reorder our society, and this book will guide readers on how to thrive in this new landscape by reclaiming their fundamental humanity from a broken system to live more productive and sustainable lives.--From publisher description."@en ;
