I enjoyed your The Joy of Not Working.
Rat race is more damaging than ever. Like cancer eating away at fabric of society. Technology is suppose to let us have more leisure time but it did the opposite for many people.
Work epidemic that you mention has infected Singapore a great deal.
Here the government launched family day out. Too many people are working long hours & sacrificing family.
Some of reasons are:
- increasing foreign workers competition
- foreign workers have no family & friends so long hours; locals struggle
or get fired
- rising costs of living
- keeping up with the joneses
- increasing workload (cost cutting)
- instant stress (people expecting instant replies to cellphone msg,
- increasing information overload
Thanks for your unorthodox books.
