scarcity to abundance. Money is an unworthy subject of much time and attention,
so we can expect progress from a system (such as
altruistic economics) that focuses attention instead on human
As people overcome their inner
fear of not being provided for and start to look outwards and to help others
in turn, we can expect to witness a great change in the world.
The hard work of millions has turned science fiction into science fact and made possible
