Division of labor has expanded exponentially since Adam Smith's time. We are all mostly engaged in tiny aspects of highly complex tasks most of which are related not to producing anything at all. That is how we earn our income.
Think about it. What does division of labor mean? Labor is an abstract concept. But it is actual people who do the work not abstractions of people. There is nothing like labor separate from the people who actually do work. If you are dividing labor conceptually, the result of that very practically, in the real world, is that you are dividing people. My family members, brothers, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, children are all being divided up as people. That causes productivity to skyrocket but what does it do to them? It takes away their wholeness, their humanity.
The problem with economics is that abstract concepts may be a lot of fun to think of and manipulate but when applied to real people--to you, your neighbors, your children--they have the chilling effect of dividing them up, splitting them.
Don't you think it is time to look for wholeness and let go of all this nonsense?
