ABSTRACT
The perspective of an economic historian raises questions about whether many of the most important technological improvements to living standards ever show up in economic statistics. Moreover, the prospective demise of the Factory System implied by the "new" economy may have effects on the organization of work and living standards that transcend the technologies themselves.
