The Promise and Peril of the Freelance Economy

Posted on: March 9, 2009

The Promise and Peril of the Freelance Economy by Laura Vanderkam, City Journal Winter 2009.

I found this to be an interesting, reasonably in-depth look at the freelance economy .  More and more of us have taken this road, and frankly, it is very difficult to look back.

What is particularly interesting in this article is the author’s point that freelancers are moving generally to the left – caused mostly by the lack of affordable or accessible health coverage and the country’s failure to come to consensus on a universal health care system.

Anyhow, an interesting read.
