Authored by leading experts in social, economic and environmental sciences, this book explains how moving towards shorter, more flexible hours of work could help tackle urgent problems that beset our daily lives – from overwork, unemployment and low well-being, to entrenched inequalities, needless high-carbon consumption and the lack of time to live sustainably. Time on Our Side challenges conventional wisdom about what makes a 'successful' economy. It shows how, through using and valuing time differently, we can reclaim the time to care for each other, follow our dreams and enjoy each moment.
