What Comes After an Industrial Society?
It started with this morning's book review at 10:40AM. In the first instance, I was reminded of Billy Joel's Allentown music vid. But what does happens to a society when the industrial era ends/fails? New Zealand manufacturing has been closing down or moving to China rapidly in the last few years. We have tourism and agriculture (some boutique), but I don't think it can feed as many people as "industry".
