32. So the Chinese labor goes away...

What do they do instead? They can't all get two acres of farmland and start growing their own food you know.

And what about all the cheap crap that will not fill the world even more? Oh, I think I want a 3D model of Justin Bieber... bang! I got one. More landfill crap... is this progress?

Yes, it is easy to say how it will "liberate" people, just like washing machines liberated people from the trouble of washing and microwaves saved so much cooking time. But did any of these things actually make the world or people's lives better? Will this?

What will happen to all the extra crap you print up every time there is a new model of cell phone available for a free download?
