What Will The Economy Look Like In 50 Years?

May 20th, 2017

Over the course of human history has the sheer concept of money itself, not seemingly evolved? Whereby, I find it important to remember that only a few centuries ago… no one had; credit cards, fancy bank accounts or credit scores. But can you imagine our society without; credit cards, home loans, credit scores or interest on debt? And while this may seem like a long forgotten reality, it was not that long ago the reality, relative to our species total evolution, thus far. And in fact, only 1-2 centuries ago, it’s very plausible that; interest, loans and credit, were all considered to be, “liberal ideologies,” or economically idealistic, yet these things are common place, today!

However, it’s amazing how things have changed…

Because what is credit? And isn’t credit or interest, the very mechanism that has maintained poverty… since the beginning of time? Which then also leads me to wonder, “when did currency… take this modern form, in and of itself?”

"Because as humans grow more and more intellectual… and as times change and inventions spring up, it often feels as though, “we lose something of ourselves,” as a species, with every new technology and social evolution."

-William Larsen IIIrd

And imagine the advent of speech itself, if you can. Before speech, before linguistics, the earliest humans operated solely off of feelings and sentiment. And now… if you can… try to imagine that generational divide! And try to think about whether those people even considered the rawest form of invention, “speech itself,” as a beneficial, “invention?” (To them and to their society.)

Whereby, obviously speech has since created levels of sophistication that most people in today’s world deem, “necessary,” for modern living. Yet, several millennia later, few people recognize how these ground breaking, “technologies,” like speech itself, have left us naive to the ways of the past! And furthermore, this concept is especially true for many, “relatively modern inventions,” as well. And another example of this… is the telephone… because imagine the upper classes reaction, when for the first time in human history, they could be spoken to by another in real time, without that person being present.

And try to imagine the shifts and social dynamics that arise from these types of inventions and innovations, both culturally and technologically speaking.

But beyond just that… take currency, perhaps the most important, “invention,” of them all… and do you believe that throughout history, “paper,” dictated authority like it does today? Because before currency, it was land ownership, however, with land you grew food and there were different parameters. And furthermore, in ancient times, land ownership dictated wealth… but with land…. you could only hold as much as you could defend. So now imagine those dynamics of social change in a modern context, arising from the advent of things like; credit, insurance and legality. Whereby, many of these, “inventions,” have seemingly brought forth economic evolution and devolution, as well as a technological renaissance.

"So, long story short… his story, her story… I feel as though every time we gain something due to new advancements in technology, we lose something as well."

But where will this lead? Where will this rabbit hole of innovation take the human race? And what will the economy, which holds us all together, look like in 50 years? And I predict that people will eventually notice how inflation is devastating to the poor and maintain a stronger currency. But furthermore, I also predict that eventually the masses will seek reforms over housing and food, as population densities grow.

And this isn’t politics, this is common sense… yet, how often do we discuss evolution in this way?

Whereby, opponents of these ideals… almost seem to, “use money as a cleansing tool,” literally breeding out members of our society, through economic measures. And in my opinion… wars are no longer fought on the ground or with guns and knives, where wars today… are fought between classes, through hours of labor. And in fact, I believe that many people in power today, avoid reform simply because they view, “money,” as a mechanism to weed out the weakest genomes within our societies. But also… I believe that this is due to a lack of appreciation, for the uniqueness, which I believe inhabits every human life on Earth today. So for this reason, in 50 years, I believe that the future economy will see an increased value in human life.

However, I also believe that the perception of the masses will change and that people will begin viewing strangers as uniquely crafted, spiritual beings, all capable of a different perspective, beneficial to the collective whole as time goes on.

But what will the economy look like in 50 years? And when is change essentially beneficial? Because in the future I believe that the masses will seek a stronger currency, as well as a humanitarian relief effort for all peoples, in the form of food and shelter. And what will the implications of those decisions/evolutions be, moving forward? Because for starters, it will mean a greater appreciation for human life… but also economic and social consequence(s). Which is to say, “that through every wave of new technology, it feels as though we lose something of ourselves,” in the process and in each case of new technology we may lose our instinctual awareness, physical speed and perceptions of trust… as well!

Whereby, take this reform as an example… “universal food and housing,” which creates a greater appreciation for human life, but also takes another step towards overpopulation.

Where once again, with gains will come loses.

And what about, “the hard facts,” what about the federal budget and how will we maintain a stronger currency AND eliminate poverty? And if, “the poor minded grow rich,” then is that not the very fabric of inflation itself? Aren’t the weak minded, who find themselves in positions of power, not the surest sign of inflation, itself?

And how will the economy maintain a stronger currency and focus on eliminating poverty?

Because I believe that answer lies in currency, which I believe will once again evolve. Whereby, once again… this has happened before, many times throughout our countries history –but I believe that in 50 years… food benefits and government subsidized housing, will actually break apart from the current 1 size fits all version of, “money,” that we all know and love today. Whereby, I believe that America will begin to form private sub currencies, like crypto-currency and even evolve different government currency(s), as well for food and housing. And what if the government gave people, “food vouchers,” instead of, “food money?” And in many ways, that is already taking place today through food stamp programs.

And why should 7/11, Walmart, etc… get to stand at the mouth of government spending? (Furthermore, why is Walmart benefiting from that type of government spending, when they’re business model is what created this, “jobless economy,” in the first place?)

So for that reason, I often feel; honesty, integrity and a balanced budget, have seemingly already fallen out of reach, for my generation…

So what will the economy look like in 50 years?

And I believe that our nation’s currency will divide into 3 forms;

1. Cash.

2. Food vouchers.

3. Housing vouchers.

And imagine a world, where real estate barons collecting social security, as rent checks, could only collect housing vouchers and use them for housing… or perhaps to pay their taxes, as well. Or what if food vouchers collected could only be used for food, in return as well? Essentially creating surplus’ of vouchers and not cold hard cash in the pockets of Walmart. Which was the main point of today’s article, however, there is one more evolution of money… that I’d like to discuss, before I conclude.
Because I believe that one last economic evolution, moving forward, will surround the topic of inheritance, as well.

Whereby, I also believe that a lot of greed and corruption today, often stems from wealthy individuals, who seem to believe that they’re somehow, “eluding their families from labor,” through growing excessively rich.

Which is comical to me… for a variety of reasons.

And due to that greed, I don’t believe that inheritance will be allowed in the form of currency, in the near future as well. Whereby, to be clear… I view inheritance like giving a black belt, to a kindergartner, because it makes the currency meaningless to the beholder and undermines other people’s hard work. But also, beyond that ideology, inheritance rarely survives 2 or 3 generations anyway, because in my opinion… it often creates a lack of respect for the beholder, not to mention encourages more greed.

So… there you have it, that’s how I believe the economy will change… 50 years from today.

But how do you think the economy will change in the next 50 years? And comment below… because the rest is up to you!
