The world's richest man, Mexican billionaire tycoon Carlos Slim, says you should work just three days a week.

He presents this solution as a way to improve people's quality of life and create a more productive workforce. 

Speaking at a business conference in Paraguay, the telecommunications mogul suggested that a shorter working week, but with longer hours and a later retirement.

The benefits far outweigh the costs, said Slim, who took Bill Gates' spot as the richest man in the world last week.

He said: "With three work days a week, we would have more time to relax; for quality of life."

What do you think? Would you support a three-day working week?
