"We do find essays about the Slow Food and (I am not making this up) Slow Sex movements, as well as work, leisure, children and alternative medicine. We learn slow is chic in Japan (home of the Sloth Club), where advertisers now use the world 'slow' spelled out in English to sell everything from cigarettes to apartment blocks. The Japanese are studying the 'Dutch model' of employment, where one person in three works part-time. The world, likewise, is studying the 'Finnish model' of education, where 'slow-learning' students outperform those in other OECD countries. "
