It seems that we should question the notion put forward by neo-classical economics that more is always better than less, and that without price restraints demand is essentially infinite.

If we look to those countries that have been most successful in creating equality, the Scandanavians, we find that they all possess this cultural concept of lagom, enough, which means that economies exist only to provide enough so that we are comfortable.

It gives real meaning to the question, "Live to work, or work to live?"

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
