The model yields two results. First, the division of labor increases in the long run if the endogenous speed of technical change is not too high. More generally, the division of labor tends to decrease when the technical change accelerates. These results are consistent with French data. The polarity between technical and manual workers suggested by concepts such as ‘mental’ and ‘manual’ labour, was more fiction than fact for the majority of technical staff at Filton. By training, background and daily co-operative practice, there was considerable mutuality between skilled manual workers and established technical : Chris Smith.
