Rifkin, J., & Heilbroner R. L. (1994).  The End of Work: The Decline of the Global Labor Force and the Dawn of the Post-Market Era.
"NEARLY FIFTY YEARS AGO, at the dawn of the computer revolution, the philosopher and psychologist Herbert Marcuse made a prophetic observation—one that has come to haunt our society as we ponder the transition into the Information Age: Automation threatens to render possible the reversal of the relation between free time and working time; the possibility of working time becoming marginal and free time becoming full time. The result would be a radical transvaluation of values, and a mode of existence incompatible with the traditional culture. Advanced industrial society is in permanent mobilization against this possibility." (p. 221)
