A left-wing think tank suggests having a 21 hour working week.

“So many of us live to work, work to earn, and earn to consume, and our consumption habits are squandering the earth’s natural resources.”

Has to be one of the daftest ideas I’ve heard for a while (although yes, a four day weekend would be nice). If we had less money, it would probably just mean we would consume as much but what we did consume would mostly be cheap crap instead (as opposed to just quite a lot of it being cheap crap currently). We’d all shop at Primark!
