Revolutionary and Disruptive

We've been reviewing CRN's list of thirty essential studies that must be performed before we can have an adequate understanding of the potential societal impacts of nanotechnology. Studies 17 through 30 deal with "Policies and Policymaking." These studies assume the existence of a general-purpose molecular manufacturing system. We list problems and opportunities raised by molecular manufacturing, and point out the difficulties of making policy to deal with them.
