Subject: Broke and Immortal!

In Message #10753 Marty Kardon wondered about being brought back broke.

While frozen, any money you had was ripped off by crooked clever shysters.


To be restored to life at least SOME advances will have to be made.

PROBABLY the technologies of the future will expand wealth across the board.

Just recall what it was like 100 years ago.  

500 years ago.

All in all, things ARE better now.

Even if you're broke.

Today, you work to earn money to buy things.

In time, machines will work to make all the things you can buy (or eat).

If no one is needed to produce goods, that still leaves services.

But machines (computers for example) are doing more service work even now.

If no one is NEEDED to work, there will be no need for money.

Or darned little need.

Bet you wake up broke because money is extinct.

I predict no money by 2034.

I am never wrong.
