The "50 years from now" of then

has become the 5 years from now of today. Advancement is exponentially accelerating.

In 1990, the fastest company to hit $1B in revenue took a decade. In 2000, it happened in 5 years. In 2005, it took 2 years and last year it happened in under a year. Even counting for massive inflation (the devaluing of $1B) that's very fast.

Greed isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as all players (the workers and the employers) have an equal playing field to compete on.
