The inevitable dream of plenty is appearing on the horizon – hydroponics and aeroponics to turn deserts into fertile gardens, graphene membranes make sea water drinkable, and the startup SuperMeat already poised to grow chicken breasts from stem cells. The time it takes for technology to become a mass phenomenon and free of charge is shrinking and the prices of goods are steadily tending to zero – additive production and digital platforms will soon make the cost of producing one unit of a given product equal to that of a thousand copies. Each year we use more and more things without buying them. This is how plenty will be realised.
