Refining the Work Ethic

Abstract:
In Refining the Work Ethic, Barry Brooks asks some very interesting questions about why we work--and explains why we should work less. He begins by pointing out that we don't open cans of food full-time just to make maximum use of can openers, then asserts that keeping everyone employed is just as wasteful. It makes me wonder: if we fear unemployment enough to keep people busy at unnecessary and wasteful jobs today, will nearly-free nanotech manufacturing make any difference?
