Vickerman (1980) writing appropriately in a journal called Futures, analysed the policy implications of the then accepted scenario of leisure time becoming more and more abundant. In this chapter we have shown that, at least for some countries in the world, notably the USA and Britain, most people seem to be faced with decreasing leisure time and would prefer to trade-off some of their income for more leisure time. Such evidence casts doubt on the validity of the income/leisure trade-off model.

Gershuny (1996) reports further evidence to show that there is a clear preference of those working the longest hours to reduce their working hours. A staggering 57 per cent of women in the top 20 per cent of income earners and of working hours wanted to reduce their working hours in 1994/95. 7 shows that as you move up the hierarchy of either income or working hours the preference for reducing working hours grows. It rises more steeply for women than for men. Part of the reason for higher preferences of women for shorter working hours may be the length of time they spend on domestic unpaid work.

UKTS (1998) indicated that 55 per cent of all holiday trips taken by UK residents in the UK involved some type of sport and recreation activity.
