Don Boudreaux, chef för ekonomiinstutionen på George Mason University skriver följande:
"Jobs are ubiquitous; there's no shortage of them. One job that I often offer to people is the job of painting my house for free. Of course, no one will accept this job. The reason is that people don't want the job so much as they want to acquire purchasing power.
Therefore, "creating jobs" is not the real challenge. Jobs are everywhere. The real challenge is creating widespread opportunities for earning large and growing purchasing power."
Att ytterligare förkorta arbetstiden, eller införa friår, behövs inte. Det finns jobb.
