Robots Tells Us About Money, Credit, and Why We Should Abolish America’s Central Bank (May, 2016).
Tamny’s third book, The End of Work, will be released in May of 2018. In it, he chronicles the amazing
evolution of abundant work that rewards more and more unique skills and singular forms of intelligence.
The “end of work” is near precisely because the jobs of today and tomorrow increasingly don’t feel like
work.
