Why Technology Didn't Produce Increased Leisure

We got the forty-hour workweek as the result of the Great Depression. There just wasn't enough work to go around with the fifty-hour workweeks of the 1920s.

With manufacturing and computer-organized clerical work we can work far fewer hours and achieve just as much.
