Have you ever wondered why you’re so busy, where your time goes, or how much your time is really worth?
This book will radically alter your understanding of the nature and value of time. Authored by leading experts in social, economic and environmental sciences, it explains how moving towards shorter, more flexible hours of work could help tackle urgent problems that beset our daily lives – from overwork, unemployment and low well-being, to entrenched inequalities, needless high-carbon consumption and the lack of time to live sustainably.
The book contains contributions from:

If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
