Bill Gates predicts that by 2050, 50% of the working population will work at home. Even in England in 2000 the DoE recorded 20% of British workers spend a portion of the week working at home... Life in the future - in 2021 - will be CHUNKY. Intense and demanding projects will alternate with 'sabbaticals' - some paid for by organizations, others self-funded. In this new work, Charles Handy, the brilliant social philosopher and management guru, examines the questions that face us at the start of a new age. Using the metaphor of the "Elephant and the Flea he discusses the future of everything from education, work and marriage, to capitalism, management, religion and society. He carefully considers the balancing act that both individuals (fleas) and larger organizations (elephants) will face in the next twenty years. Increasingly technological advances mean the disappearance of the middle - or disintermediation. This means that many careers will radically transform or vanish altogether in the coming decades. If vacationers can go on-line to access all their travel information they won't need travel agents. If a patient can access a diagnosis on the net, and purchase medication through a dot.com drug store, then the need for doctors will plummet. Handy explores the significance of the vast changes we can expect, and those already here, brought about by the democratic power of the internet. He suggests that many people will learn to develop a portfolio career, expecting to change directions dramatically throughout their lives. A multitude of fleas - consultants, suppliers, sub-contractors, and advisers - will support larger organizations, without being full-time employees. Theoffice, Handy predicts, will become more of a club house, with luxurious meeting rooms, gyms, and even overnight accommodations. And that transformation will change even the look of our city skylines.

Bookseller Charles Handy's best-selling new book looks at how individuals (the fleas in his analogy) relate to multi-national conglomerates (the elephants). In addition to addressing how and why we work today, he covers a wide range of preoccupations and issues including the increasing fear of big business: 'it is easy to see why many observers think that the big corporations are now both richer and more powerful than many nation states. They worry that these new corporate states are accountable to no-one - that their financial clout makes governments beholden to them ... The elephants, people feel, are out of control.'

You've heard the saving, `the elephant in the room', meaning an issue that is impossible to overlook (no matter how hard you try!). The strange thing is, all of us seem to concentrate and focus only on these big issues, thinking that if they are worked out and sorted everything else will be fine. While that might be great in theory, what you really need to look out for are `the fleas', the small issues. These little, pesky and annoying things in life have the ability to become quite large over time, possibly as big as elephants, and so they need to be overcome and eradicated before they do. Justin Herald tackles the areas that are most likely to be the fleas in your life, so you can recognise and resolve them before they grow into larger and more difficult-to-handle problems. It's the small issues that create the big problems, so Forget the elephants, watch out for the fleas.

The Elephant Cage By: Brooks Powell F*** your parliament and your constitution. America is an elephant. Cyprus is a flea. Greece is a flea. If these two fleas continue itching the elephant, they may just get whacked good ...We pay a lot of good American dollars to the Greeks, Mr. Ambassador. If your Prime Minister gives me talk about democracy, parliament and constitution, he, his parliament, and his constitution may not last long..." Comment by President Lyndon B. Johnson to the Greek ambassador - June 1964 1974 - the height of the Cold War. U.S. listening posts surround the Soviet Union eavesdropping on virtually every Russian radio communication. Operated by White House staff, manned by military personnel, and managed by CIA agents, the listening posts gather, analyze, and report intercepted intelligence to the National Security Council who use it to plot and carry out bloody anti-communist regime change. Field intelligence workers - low paid soldiers work long hours in dark rooms scanning airwaves for Soviet targets while struggling to stay awake and sane in a backward third-world country. Some soldiers escape this reality with the assistance of high-powered cannabis, promiscuous sex, and ear-deafening rock and roll.
