A New Age is Coming! Industry – Labour – Capital
Today it is golden shopping carts that are bringing us to the new age. In the past, privatisation vouchers, large home appliances, self-management, games of military hide-and-seek, the earliest trade fairs, the struggle for workers’ rights, the first factories and factory-owners were likewise bringing us to new ages. Industry changing the image of cities; cities changing the lives of workers; workers changing capital; capital changing the rhythm of life. The same processes were going on across Europe, but in Ljubljana they occurred our way.
