You are totally right on. This ‘is’ the future, although there may be two worlds living against each other if your scenario comes alive. To address your $30k number issue, I suggest you use the ‘livable wage’ model for determining the number. See http://livingwage.mit.edu/ . By the way, there are already countries who are experimenting with this model. I’ll bet they find out that there is less stress, more ‘useful’ and ‘meaningful’ productivity (i.e. a reduction in the making of useless widgets just to make a buck), less crime, more humanity and social support for each other … on and on. Now the question is: HOW TO MAKE THIS A VIRAL MOVEMENT?! Anyone got suggestions, ideas, resources to make it happen?
