Why do we work almost as hard as we did 40 years ago, despite being on average twice as rich? Robert Skidelsky suggests an escape from the work and consumption treadmill. This event marks the paperback publication of Robert and Edward Skidelsky's book How Much Is Enough?
Robert Skidelsky is emeritus professor of political economy at the University of Warwick. His three-volume biography of the economist John Maynard Keynes (1983, 1992, 2000) received numerous prizes; he also penned the critically acclaimed Keynes: The Return of the Master.
