Whatever Happened to the Life of Leisure?

Longer working hours, later retirement, lousy pensions - hardly the life of leisure we were promised for the 21st century! So what went wrong and what can we do about it?

This is a book about the Real Economics of real people, written in plain English. It is a book about appalling failings and the appalling ignorance of the people who have been allowed to run our economy. It is also, however, a book about a better future - about what we, as individuals and as a society, could become if only we stopped wasting our resources and our talents. It is a book about a potential economic miracle - but to achieve that miracle, we first need to understand where we are now and how we got here!
