Tamny is the author of Popular Economics: What the Rolling Stones, Downton Abbey, LeBron James Can Teach You About Economics (April. 2015), Who Needs the Fed?

In it, he chronicles the amazing evolution of abundant work that rewards more and more unique skills and singular forms of intelligence. The “end of work” is near, precisely because the jobs of today and tomorrow increasingly don’t feel like work.
