Timothy Taylor writes,

Orazio Attanasio, Erik Hurst, and Luigi Pistaferri provide evidence that inequality of consumption has risen as well. But here, I want to focus on another one of their arguments: the rise in inequality of leisure. But there’s a twist here: those with more leisure, and who are benefiting from a disproportionate rise in leisure, tend to be those with lower skill levels. The evidence is in “The Evolution of Income, Consumption, and Leisure Inequality in The US, 1980-2010,” published as NBER Working Paper #17982 in April 2012.

Life as a thete.
