The Promise and Perils of Work in the Gig Economy

Jeremias Prassl

  • A critical and engaging exploration of the gig economy: its realities, its problems, and its wider implications
  • Considers the variety of approaches and business models, and how these constantly evolve to meet new market demands and regulatory challenges.
  • Examines how the language of 'gigs', sharing, and collaboration disguises the reality of platforms reliant on a vast and under-employed on-demand workforce.
  • Develops a blueprint to solve the problems facing on-demand workers, platforms, and their customers.
