Keynes, possibility for our grandchildren

Elizabeth Kolbert: Discusses Economic possibilities in The New Yorker there is a nice overview of some of the reasons why the leisure has not arrived.  

"Joseph Stiglitz, of Columbia University, by contrast, takes a constructivist approach. People’s choices, he argues, are molded by society and, over time, become self-reinforcing. We “learn how to consume by consuming,” he writes, and how to “enjoy leisure by enjoying leisure.”"
