The burgeoning literature dealing with work-life balance suggests that the developed world is more interested in this issue today than at any time in the recent past. "Work, Leisure and the Environment" is about a fundamental flaw in market economies that causes us to unknowingly reduce our well-being by working and consuming too much. We do this because we are unable to correctly assess the benefits we derive from our individual work effort. By ignoring the environmental destruction that accompanies this work effort, we overestimate its benefits, with the consequence that we choose to work longer hours than we should. This book will have widespread appeal amongst researchers and policy-makers interested in the environment, labour economics and work - life balance.
