This in-depth research from the World Bank covers the latest on developing world employment: the economic, political and social aspects of what constitutes work in many emerging nations. The text precisely defines a concept – a job – that is difficult to pin down, given the myriad ways people labor and the complex significance that work has for human beings.

How does Refind curate?

- In addition, our users save links from around the web using our Save buttons and our extensions.
- Our algorithm processes 100k+ new links every day and uses external signals to find the most relevant ones, focusing on timeless pieces.
- Our community of active users gets 5 links every day, tailored to their interests. They provide feedback via implicit and explicit signals: open, read, listen, share, add to reading list, save to «Made me smarter», «More/less like this», etc.
- Our algorithm uses these internal signals to refine the selection.
- In addition, we have expert curators who manually curate niche topics.
The result: lists of the best and most useful articles on hundreds of topics.
