" As anthropologists, we are capable of looking at social alternatives. I
think one of the traps in our society is that we're too focused on finding
'jobs,' and not good at thinking at the ways in which we can provide people
meaningful work (and an income) outside of a 'job.'"

I agree totally. Also, for people as bright as most anthropologists like to
think they are, flexible work arrangements don't have to be terrifying. I
speak from the perspective of someone who has worked on annual contracts for
more than a decade. It's the norm in business, you know.
