Heinlein on The New Economy

September 19, 2012

Excerpted from Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert Heinlein:

“How can a school teacher teach a child who knows more than she does and won’t hold still for mistaken teaching? What becomes of physicians and dentists when people are truly healthy? What happens to the cloak & suit industry…when clothing isn’t really needed at all and women aren’t so endlessly interested in dressing up…and nobody gives a damn if he’s caught with his arse bare? What shape does ‘the Farm Problem’ take when weeds can be told not to grow and crops can be harvested without benefit of International Harvester or John Deere?”
