Varian on Leisure

In today's NY Times, Hal Varian examines how we spend our time. The short version:
the amount of leisure time per capita hasn’t changed much in the last 105 years....70 percent of the reduction in work hours has been offset by increased hours in school.
Wish I could say more, but I have to head off to class. This semester I am taking a graduate course taught by our young star Oleg Tsyvinski--time I would otherwise spend either working or enjoying leisure.
