My younger brother Tom McQueeny returns to the podcast to talk about the idea of the 15 hour work week, which economist John Maynard Keynes said, in 1928, would be norm of his grandchildren's time.  The conversation moves to what this mean to innovations like Apple's iPhone, and whether some people in a Keynesian type of work society would still need to put in the really long hours.
