Several expert contributors focus on global issues, including the role of transnational finance, interlocking directorates, ownership and tax havens. Others examine how these issues at the global level interact with the regional or nation state level in the US, the UK, China, Australia and Mexico. The books scrutinizes globalization from a fresh, holistic perspective, examining the relationship between the national and transnational to uncover the most significant structures and agents of power. Possible policy futures are also considered.

Research into the future of work needs to encompass biotechnological change, including what happens when technology is embedded within humans, and how that relates to social structures and forces. Most jobs will likely be affected. Cyborg work also changes some key aspects of the reproduction of classes, and of class relations, with particular implications for control. We consider the implications of technology becoming a characteristic of individuals themselves, and of the likely sequencing of access. Research also needs to ask: what is to be done? The march towards cyborg technology is not inherently bad, with potentially major benefits for some. But it poses one of the greatest challenges society will have faced since the emergence of capitalism. The traditional way of responding to policy questions in the world of work—wait till a problem is very evident, argue about it for a long time, and then do something—will not succeed.
