Would a three-day work week improve your quality of life? Carlos Slim, the second richest man in the world, says it would.

During a press conference, Slim called for a “radical overhaul” in workers’ lives. He said people should work three days a week, but longer hours. He also said people should work more years, until they’re 70 or 75.

“With three work days a week, we would have more time to relax, for quality of life,” he said. "Having four days [off] would be very important to generate new entertainment activities and other ways of being occupied.”
