Free lunch for corporations means no lunch for workers

free work drives out paid work

Where free work drives out paid work
A free lunch of common sense: by Stanislas Jourdan.
"A large amount of the market economy’s profits is built on a large free lunch – the one of the non-market economy."
The above article shows that corporations are getting free work, so much so that paid works are disappearing. With open source volunteer software development, there is less need for paid programmers, software analysts, etc. With netizens writing free product reviews,  paid reviewers are disappearing. The disappearance of good reasonable jobs is a motivation for a guaranteed basic income.

Even not so good and unreasonable jobs can disappear when large groups of people do volunteer work.

The world is short of jobs.
