Title: Economy and Culture, imagining the reinvention of everything
Political governance on Earth organizes around control and management of energy. If we introduce new energy technology, we change the politics and economics of every place and every activity. What do this mean to who governs? If energy is abundant, how will we share the wealth while still valuing scare resources, such as water and land? What will the impact be on our values and how we spend our time? Breakthrough energy technology is more than new technology. It is part of the reinvention of everything. How a transitioning from an economy based on scarcity and competition to an economy based on abundance and cooperation by implementation of breakthrough energy can benefit us all.
