Is the concept of a 15-hour work week more realistic than it sounds? Historian and author Rutger Bregman is one of Europe’s most prominent thinkers, and is best known for his recently released bestseller Utopia for Realists, in which he makes a case for a shorter work week and universal basic income. In his two talks at the Melbourne Writers Festival, he will discuss his vision of a more equal future, and address the economic and social implications of artificial intelligence on the workforce.
