Resource:
Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself
.
Publisher:
New York, NY: Warner Books, 2002
.
Notes:
With over 25 million Americans now self-employed, and fewer than one in ten working for a Fortune 500 company, this work synthesizes the seismic shift in attitudes about and patterns of work in the economy from the early 1950s era to today's independent worker, the free agent. Summarizes what this major shift in the definition of employment now means to millions of Americans and explains the various types of free agents. Offers an analysis and prediction of this "new wave" of self-employment that calls for Americans to wake up to the fact that commitment to a traditional corporate structure does not guarantee personal validation or financial security
