How Much is Enough?: Money and the Good Life is a 2012 popular economics book by Robert Skidelsky and Edward Skidelsky. It was published initially by Other Press and later by Penguin Books.
The book asks why Westerners work so many hours per week and lead lives that revolve around money, business and financial decisions in defiance of John Maynard Keynes’ 1930 assertion that there would come a time (around 2015) when capitalism would be able to provide for all our needs and the work week would drop to 10 or even 5 hours.
The book and (Edward Skidelsky’s writing generally) looks into the idea of The good life and how Capitalism may have been the key to it, but we have now lost sense of the good life as a priority.
The solutions offered to this problem are to “curb insatiability” and to consider a form of basic income for society.
