Barry Jones, talking on the ABC's Perspective program: about Managing and Valuing Time: "We find it extraordinarily difficult to impute value to our own time use: this is almost always conferred by somebody else, usually an employer, a situation that leads inevitably to willing acceptance of externally imposed goals and anxiety about internally generated ones." ... "In the 'Information Age' the nexus between the value of labour inputs and the total value of outputs has broken down irretrievably. We must evolve new attitudes to time use and ways of conferring value on it. Developing a philosophy of 'time use value' should be high on the public agenda."
