Overview: Tony Boyd, Australia’s leading journalist, reports on the release of a major report by Australian think tank CEDA called Australia’s Future Workforce? In the article, Boyd highlights the rapid migration to independent employment around the world and the often weakened position of the contractors under such arrangements. David Moloney and ICG are quoted as solutions to this problem because, unlike ‘virtual serfdom’ models, ICG combines a professional association-like structure and an open architecture platform which fairly and transparently manages the matching of demand and supply.
