JOBS: Juliet Schor

Juliet Schor is Professor of Sociology at Boston College. Schor's research over the last ten years has focused on issues pertaining to trends in work and leisure, consumerism, the relationship between work and family, women's issues, and economic justice. Her latest book, Plentitude: The New Economics of True Wealth, offers a groundbreaking statement about the economics and sociology of ecological decline, suggesting a radical change in how we think about consumer goods, value, and ways to live.
