Only One or Two Days a Week Working for Money

When we eliminate all that unnecessary production, and shift much of the remain­der to backyards, local small business and cooperatives, and into the non-cash sector of the economy, most of us will probably need to go to work for money in an office or a factory for only one or two days paid work per week. We could spend the other 5 or 6 days working-playing around the neighbourhood doing many varied, interesting and useful things everyday. Some of that time would be spent in contributions to working bees, producing the “free” fruit etc. from the commons.

In The Simpler Way there will be far less emphasis on work and production and economic affairs, and therefore much less stress and worry, and attention can shift to more important things.
