Toward a Future Beyond Employment proposes that as poor nations move to the emerging stage and as emerging economies become advanced, advanced economies are transitioning to a stage of their own, to a type of post-employment economy where society works less, consumes less, but instead has more time.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In this engaging book, Cangul challenges us to examine our modern preoccupation with work, a crucially important topic in these troubling economic times. Cangul makes a persuasive case that we can be wealthier and happier if we start thinking of work as just one possible use of our time rather than our reason for living. " - Mark D. White, Chair and Professor, Department of Philosophy, College of Staten Island/CUNY, USA; author, The Manipulation of Choice: Ethics and Libertarian Paternalism

"Cangul offers truly seminal ideas about life in a world that is eliminating jobs at a mind-boggling place. As the vortex of technological breakthroughs relentlessly speeds up, old paradigms crumble and take with them the binding mythologies that offer the comfort of stability. This insightful and challenging book addresses the coming world of diminished hours of work which will inevitably present workers in the West with the challenge of filling those hours with still undiscovered activities. This important book should be read by the policy makers who will guide our adjustment to those new activities." - Joseph Dillon Davey, Professor, Rowan University, USA
