So these autistic Japanese weavers, how many hours will they be working every week to fill all the orders?


#3

Love this sort of thing. Backed. :smile:

As the rewards will be made to order in the NYC studio, while the items for the show are being woven in Japan (each designer being paired with a single weaver), probably zero.


#4

Probably fewer than Americans would be working.

/go to the year 2013, sort them by number of hours.
//while you’re there: lazy Mexicans?


#5

You’re right, I was too cynically focused on the intersection between the textile industry and autism.

This will probably be great.


#6

What’s going on with Greece? Can that be right?


#7

Do you mean that you’re shocked, SHOCKED! to discover that the media weren’t quite portraying reality when they were covered the ‘austerity’ measures imposed on them?


#8

I was shocked, SHOCKED! that Greece averaged such a high number of hours worked per capita while saddled with a 25% unemployment rate (vs. single digit unemployment in many countries that work fewer hours per capita). But I think for OECD purposes, you’re only a worker if you’re gainfully employed. Having the potential to work but no opportunity to do so means you’re invisible to this statistic.


#9

Me, I blame the ‘austerity’ measures.

And it’s worse than just high unemployment.

/I’m quite sure that there was a better way.

It looks somewhat different from the plush offices in the International Monetary Fund and other money-pushers.
