Do We Have to Work?
A question we probably have all asked ourselves on a Monday morning, Do We Have to Work? We define ourselves by our jobs, we have internalised beliefs about its value and have built our economies and lives around those beliefs. In this thought provoking book, Matthew Taylor questions the societal reliance on continuous growth to flourish. With recent developments in Ai, the pandemic and the climate emergency, people are increasingly questioning the values we have built into the idea of growth economies. This book reviews how the meaning, status and structure of work have changed across history and culture and suggests that there is an alternative to this hectic race to produce and consume at ever faster speeds.
