Balancing competition and cooperation (2)

Balancing competition and cooperation (2)

During most of my career, I have put group interests above my personal interests. This is a main reason why I suffered a severe burn-out in 2013. I knew I was walking a tightrope and assumed that I would be able to stay within my safety zone. My calculation was wrong and I've never worked a single day since mid 2013. There's another way of looking at...

Dutch Labour’s early April 1 joke

Dutch Labour’s early April 1 joke

Sometimes you hear and read things that do not make any sense. Yesterday, news media announced a proposal of the Dutch Labour party to make the sale of diesel and petrol illegal by 2030 - in 14 years time. Given the lunacy of this plan, I still wonder if it's a premature April 1 joke. On the other hand, this plan shows why Dutch Labour keeps sinking...

A few months later - after a time-out - this blog became my platform for obtaining political support for freelancers and...

Unaffordable

A recent Zembla TV broadcast stated that people over 50 years have little to no chance finding a job in today's labour market. It was a Dutch broadcast but I have little doubt that the same statement applies to many other countries all over the world. On top of that, I am an independent contractor (i.e., self-employed) and thus not eligible for Dutch social benefits...

ZZP pensioensparen ?? Willem Drees (1886-1988), AOW (1957) en AFM (2015)

Bevoogding is terug op de politieke agenda. Zelfs instituten zoals de AFM laten zich nu gebruiken om een politiek standpunt te verkondigen. Willem Drees vond het in 1947 nodig om de voorloper van de AOW (1957) te introduceren voor werknemers. In 2015 willen de Staatssecretaris voor SZ en de AFM verplicht pensioensparen voor ondernemers introduceren. ZZP'ers zijn...
