Standard of Living

This is a rather sober assessment of where we are and where we have been over the last 30 years or so.

What is not discussed here is how much of our politics will be about who captures that increase in productivity we do experience. Also not discussed is tone. One can be miserable with reasonable material well being because prospects for future growth are nil. Alternatively, one can develop a sense of self-reliance a la Thoreau's Walden, which in turn would produce uplift in outlook, based in the here and now rather than on future prospects.
