The Trump election and the general tide of populism rising across the developed nations are the initial notes of the funeral dirge for my oft referred to, "end of the work to consume economic model".
The confused anger of the dispossessed of that system found their voice by voting for a snake oil salesman. Promise to do everything and do nothing. This to shall pass and a new synthesis will emerge, probably a new, tech generated wealth sharing social model.
The question is, will the transition be peaceful? History indicates that it will not be. Vested interest go to the wall to defend their privileges and perks. (See the late great Nicholas and Alexandra.)
