We could provide everyone with an abundance of everything they need to live a good life, all whilst reducing the workweek significantly: the future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed yet.
In the 1930s, it was predicted that advances in technology and productivity would mean, that by now, we’d be working a 15 hour week. The predicted advances happened, but led to an intensification, rather than a reduction of work.

At a growth rate of 3% a year, the economy will double in size after 23 years. This means, by the end of the century, it will be 10 times bigger than it is now. To stay within ecological limits, we must change the system by significantly reducing the amount of work people do, by sharing out the necessary labour, and gearing production towards meeting human needs rather than the logics of capital.
