The place of biskat in today's world
and the link to the gig economy
The gig economy is made up of project-based, or on-demand services, that can be provided by anyone. The common denominator in the gig economy is technology, making our modern online-lives provide the perfect marketplace for the evermore diverse opportunities.
The New Economy
The gig economy workforce is leading the charge toward new ways of earning money. Success is no longer defined by how long you stay with a company, but how uniquely valuable you can be to them as new projects come up. This value makes the difference between sporadic gigs, and consistent, dependable work.
Who is taking part in this revolution?
1 out of 3 gig economy workers have a W-2 job but continue to work side-gigs. Traditionally these side gigs have involved creative skills like writing and photography, or services, like transportation or administrative work. Now they include CEOs, corporate consultants, doctors, accountants, and human resources directors. We are starting to see an expansion in the number of people who are taking on more side gigs and ultimately becoming a full time member of the gig economy.
From the Shadow
into the Light
In 2009, the OECD concluded that half the world’s workers (almost 1.8 billion people) were employed in the shadow economy. By 2020, the OECD predicts the shadow economy will employ two-thirds of the world’s workers.
A brand spanking new MacKenzie Global Institute (MGI) study backs this up. MGI found that 20% to 30% of the working-age population in the U.S. and the EU-15 (or up to 162 million individuals) engage in independent work, and that 10 to 15% of the working-age population relies on independent work for their primary income.
