to all dreams

The dream of having more time for self-expression

A 21-hour working week is the recommended maximum for developed countries. In the future, each person's task will be to come up with new activities for themselves, which will later become routine for robots. A handful of highly skilled professionals with very high incomes will remain at the top of the new economy, but this situation will require serious sacrifices. Future competition between superstars in all spheres will take extreme forms – self-development will take up more time than work itself, but hardly anyone would agree to exchange this for mere idleness.
