About this nef report on the 21 hour working week. This point:
The economist John Maynard Keynes imagined a 15-hour week by the beginning of the 21st century, because he thought we\’d no longer have to work long hours to meet our material needs.
OK, yes, I know about that and I know where the nef are getting it wrong. They\’re not thinking about the combination of paid and unpaid working hours in home production properly.
But what I want to find out is whether Keynes was making that distinction properly. My intuition (alright, my prejudice then) is that he was far too good an economist not to: so what I\’d like to see is that prediction in situ to see whether he did and whether the likes of the nef are simply skimming over it.
So, anyone know in which essay/book he makes the prediction and anyone got a link to an online version of it?
