A Glimpse of the Future

What will life be like in the future?

We will mostly live by what is around us. Things that come from afar will be special. Tools, knives and raw materials. Probably some books and musical instruments.

Food, shelter, energy, waste, water, would all be taken care of locally.

That is my vision. One way or another it’s where we are going.

How impoverished we will be someday. If that is our destination how do we invest in it?
