Which is their view on the future society, concerning one's work and non-paid work? This study is based upon a qualitative method and we have used both primary and secondary source data. We have studied relevant literature and interviewed both politicians and experts in this area. The results show that the Swedish political and social climate is not yet ready for this kind of major change, in spite of different visionaries in our society. (Less)
