The Forty Hour Work Week Powers The Economy

Economy Loop

If you designed your life,
You would want to work less,
From that we'd all feel strife,
Progress would be a mess,

If you got to work less,
You might not spend so much,
Progress would be a mess,
Indulgence not your crutch,

If you don't spend as much,
Your joys won't be the same,
Indulgence not your crutch,
Balance in life your game,

Your joys won't be the same,
With time you might seek health,
Balance in life your game,
Your gain would slash all wealth,

With time you might seek health,
Or actually read a book,
Your gain would slash all wealth,
Your self-control the crook,
 
If you rest or read books,
All lives would feel more strife,
Self-control is the crook,
So we designed your life.

    1. I know that I certainly tend to spend more when I work more. Silly/gism or syllogism, it holds true for me. :)

  3. I've got to say, Holy F'ing S#!% that was awesome! I had a great time reading along with this one! I spend a good deal of time occupying my mind with thoughts of what our pace (and population) are doing to the planet and human society, and this really resonates!
