Abstract

Walking along a city street, I look up at a gleaming office building filled with busy people. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of them are manning computers, telephones, fax machines, or copiers or maybe just shuffling paper—work that is coming to occupy the majority of employees in advanced market economies. Many seem to be working at a frantic pace. For many of these people, prosperity must seem almost like a birthright. Others, working long hours trying to get ahead, also expect at the very least a middle-class lifestyle.
