The concept of a work day / work week has been "Milli Vanilli" for a while. - https://tppr.me/kGYBQ.

Why 5 days a week? Out of the week, originally 6 days were for work and a single day was given off. The day off was religion or region-specific — Friday for Muslims, Saturday for Jews and Sunday for Christians. Eventually due to global trade it came down to 5 days (Mon-Fri).

Back in the day working sucked. The average worker had to put in 14–16 hour shifts (Industrial revolution). Campaigns, social reforms finally brought about the "8 hours work, 8 hours recreation and 8 hours sleep". https://tppr.me/XtvKr

Technology and automation have been changing things for a while, but the advent of AI has people now thinking about job displacement and the data is finally showing it: https://tppr.me/Qhpvg

Effectiveness of an avg. employee over an 8 hour work day has greatly reduced (comes to about 4.5 hrs/day)- http://bit.ly/2OA3pnm (the sugar and salt of technology)

What happens when all industries respond with mass unemployment and investments in automation? - it's obv. https://tppr.me/oDRSj

The math of full employment is interesting. Consider the following — with higher tech integration, fewer workers with current skill-sets, are to get employment in the industry. That means, to obtain “full employment” — where everyone who wants a job has one — the economy requires that everyone work shorter work-weeks (the Nordic system of Flexicurity is interesting - https://bit.ly/2OyxKm5 ), or else an ever-growing number of businesses is needed in order to employ the same amount of people. As an example, let’s assume that an average business employs 10 people in its rolls for optimal output. For full employment, with the same level of output, 10 businesses are required to employ 100 people. If technology enhances the productivity to an extent that 1 person can do the work of 10, the average people a business employs drops to 1. Under the current scenario, the number of businesses needed to employ everyone has to grow to 100. (note: compensating for population growth would require even more than 100 businesses).

We wanted to experiment with a radical concept where we would aim to limit the execution hours of a Principal to 20 hours a week (ie. 4 hours a day), 80 hours a month.

I found the Nordic system of Flexicurity fascinating (above). So to experiment a bit with that concept, we allow our Principals to freelance on the side as long as there isn't a direct conflict with a live engagement at that time or work on their own ideas with Lazy Eight resources.
