The Global Economic Breakeven Point

December 19, 2016

The Global Economic Breakeven Point is the point in time at which the global total of economic productivity due to automation exceeds the global total of living costs. It is the theoretical point at which the human species has the physical means to throw off the yoke of economic servitude, to stop living in scarcity and competition and start living in abundance and cooperation. It should be celebrated as a sort of “Independence Day” for the planet.

The question is, when will it occur? Or has it already, and we just haven’t noticed yet?

My hypothesis: this occurred around the time of World War II.
