Would have been nice if this prediction had come true:
By the end of the twentieth century, the futurist Herman Kahn prophesied in 1967, Americans would enjoy thirteen weeks of vacation and a four-day work week. The challenge, it seemed, would be figuring out what to do with all our free time.
But we're working as much as ever, and Western Europe has gotten closer to the leisure-society model. Why it happened that way is interesting. Pay attention to the part that says when less work is done, there is less work to be done.
