had a piece this week about a gig-economy worker who died on the job, and I figured the dark side of tech “disruption” might be a good way to start this issue. While the pieces I highlighted focus on the experiences of people affected by these new “innovations,” I detailed the larger issues with the gig economy in a popular piece back in 2016
The next section is housing, where I was intrigued by The Nation’s deep dive into the movements springing up across the United States to demand better rent protections and more investment in public housing. There’s also a fascinating article about the influence of Soviet urbanism on China.
Finally, some articles on the growing bike-share services before a list of other reads that you might find interesting. Personally, I’m really hoping the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur HSR goes ahead.
Have a great Sunday!
