Technology will prevail

There is still way more energy available than the 6 billion humans need, technology can make uninhabitable land habitable - and there is a lot of empty land.

Right now the only big problem is the expense of making contaminated water potable, and the cost of transporting that water.

Its not energy, but good water that is the sticking point for another spurt of population growth. Once we figure that out, the sky's the limit - which is a good thing, generally. I think the next big warrs will be over water.

The currency crisis will be solved for a while either by a global currency, or a return to economic isolationism/protectionism in the US, which will make us poorer, but not enough for too many people to complain.
