I think the future is already written. We will learn to live with less and like it. How? people consider virtual goods comparable to real goods. Max Keiser used to joke about it but its true and the federal government will adjust the cpi accordingly. Virtual reality products will be compared to real and lower the CPI. Cost of going to a virtual movie theatre $3,down from $15. Cost of buying virtual car over real car (made equivalent by virtual commuting), $100, down from $30000.
