about

Shifting Time is an incisive, fact-filled examination of social policy in Canada and the impact of new technology on the changing job market. It challenges the technological imperative and the accompanying religion of economic growth at whatever cost, including unsustainable insults to the environment.

Armine Yalnizyan is one of Canada's leading labour market analysts. T. Ran Ide is the founder of TVOntario and has spent several decades as an educator and broadcast executive. Arthur J. Cordell is one of North America's most prominent thinkers on the social implications of information technology.

From Our Editors

Shifting Time: Social Policy and the Future of Work addresses the decline of the availability and meaning of work in Canada. Armine Yalnizyan, Ran Ide and Arthur Cordell examine the new realities of work and the fate of those who may never find it. They study the world in which technological systems are characterized not by human scale and endeavour but by greater complexity, increasing capital cost and accelerating violence.
