A lecture to managers on neoliberalism

The problem with neoliberalism and its corporate culture is the same of socialism and its moral culture; the problem is the abstraction in which both fictionalized the labor, as a market or a moral system. In both cases, they loss the complexity of the human behavior and will, even prioritizing and mistaken the will of power as a leadership and passion for success. With that, both only feed the irrationality and the greed on managers and the mediocrity on the workers, through the unfairness of the relationship they build this way. As an example, everybody knows the importance of the workers to do a task in the best and more rational way; but managers think also that it's bullshit, just rhetoric to involve the workers and drive them to their genius leadership.

The reason behind that is the thinking of the labor as a market, where workers are just a disposable good; which could be right as a principle, but no describes a good worker, the one that bring an exceptional service, the best on his specialty. It's true that the labor is a market, but as a good in a market, the good goods are more expensive, and that expensive may not refer to the money but the environment and the exceptionality of the place where they work. How else could someone appeal to the engagement of that good that is a good worker? Certainly no body is indispensable, but managers less than good works; managers only retain their chairs because the submissive relationships they build, but mostly not because their talent; because there is no such thing as a talent for command, it's only bossiness.

Good workers are exceptional and bizarre, they may not ask to much about money but sure are very sensitive to bossiness, greedy and lack of appreciation; and when we talk about appreciation it's not about the bullshit to involve and confound the worker with the insincerity of the greed boss; there's somehow arrogant and dumb thinking you can be insincere and that people will not know it, since everyone has experience enough to read nonverbal language. At the end, the good worker has the freedom to leave the job or become a mediocre as these the market preconize; and while nobody is indispensable, the job is also sensitive to weight of a good worker. But that is a problem of qualities and not quantities, which explain the inability to theorize about.
