▶ Audioboo / Would the world be better if we worked less?.
Nice to hear some coverage of this on today’s Radio 4 Today programme: Andrew Simms from nef. Shorter hours is one of the ideas we present in In Place of Growth (IPOG). Predictable orthodox “people want to work longer”, “green growth” nonsense from Frances Cairncross who was put on for the usual BBC “balance”. Simms makes the point that social wellbeing and ecological safety should be criteria for all decisions – a point we also made in IPOG.
