Why we all need a shorter working week
Anna Coote, Jane Franklin
18 September 2013
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:
Time on Our Side challenges conventional wisdom about what makes a ‘successful’ economy. It shows us how, through using and valuing time differently, we can reclaim the time to care for each other, follow our dreams and enjoy each moment.
If you back a recovery plan based around great public services, protecting the planet and reducing inequality, please support NEF to build back better.
