Summary

Explores the capitalist culture of work, the respect it gives to the wealthy, and its justification of inequality. In this fascinating social history of the work ethic, the author shows that these values are neither natural nor inevitable. They have in fact been actively promoted by those who benefit most from them.

Subjects Work ethic.  |  Capitalism -- Social aspects.
