Whimsical gibberish.

I heard this author, Bregman, being interviewed by Mike Pesca on The Gist. I immediately looked to see if the library had his recent book. If you want a preview of the ideas in this book, the interview starts just about 4 and 1/2 minutes in (at 4:30) in the following link:

Some very interesting and thought-provoking ideas. Not too technical and a fairly easy read. The sections about Universal Basic Income definitely will prompt some further research into the topic.

I am sympathetic to the ideas expressed by the author, but they're poorly presented.

A series of short but powerful insights into the history of economics, work, and the elimination of poverty that is really thought provoking.

A six hour work day in 1930, five months vacation per year in the 13th Century, and the total, successful elimination of poverty in the 1970's.
