Is Greater Productivity a Danger?, David Gordon
Day 7 of Robert Wenzel's 30 Day Reading List on Libertarianism
Day 0: The Libertarian catechism
Previous: The cause of, and solution to, all the world's problems (summary) (response)
There's really no point in reading David Gordon's more-or-less accurate summary of Tim Jackson's article, "Let’s Be Less Productive or Gordon's trivial response. Jackson's article isn't that informative: I really don't know whether or not we might no longer be able to increase labor productivity. Furthemore, while Jackson offers an ontological definition of productivity, he doesn't talk about how to measure it.
The only point I can see in in Gordon's summary and response (and Wenzel's inclusion) seems to be to accuse those crazy liberals of arguing against productivity, which Jackson manifestly doesn't do.
