The Last Job

It's the Age of Leisure, and keeping it that way is a full time job. In this story, we imagine a future world where work is rare, and the party never ends. This story was inspired by an essay written by John Maynard Keynes in 1930 titled, “Economic Possibilities for our Grandchildren.”
