It’s a paradox. Never before have we worked more efficiently. Never before have we saved time with more sophisticated technologies. But nearly everyone feels they don’t have enough time.
Florian Opitz tries to track down the reasons for our lack of time and the constant acceleration of our lives. He reveals a disturbing picture of a civilisation that has disposed of all brake systems and goes blindly for unlimited and eternal growth – no matter what the consequences. But Opitz also tries to find the good life. In the niches of the global capitalism he discovers alternatives to the rat race.
