Growing World Consumption

Chris Phoenix: So we're asking for a technology that's powerful, efficient, and cheap enough to supply solar power, desalinated water, fuel cells, and high-tech agriculture for 10 billion people within 30 years. (Advanced medicine would be nice, too.) It took a century or so to build today's industrial infrastructure. We need a technology that could rebuild it, better, and quickly enough to avoid ecological or political meltdown. Molecular manufacturing could do it. Other technologies might be able to do pieces of it, but at higher cost.
