A book I am looking for is about how one day all poor people stopped working. All shops closed and rich people were left on their own - their cars would break down, no food at home - and all the poor were planning this and prepared with lots of food.

I think the book had many dystopian stories in it - one was about a remotely controlled revolver, another about invisibility.

    Welcome to Literature Stack Exchange, take our tour! Please look through the identification-request wiki to see if it jogs your memory, and if so, please edit further details into your question. For example, was this a novel or a collection of short stories? Were there illustrations? Approximately when did you read it? What language was it written in, and are you aware if it was a translation or not? Where did you read the book? etc.
