Developing countries must be ready for nanotechnology

Abstract:
Mohamad Mova Al 'Afghani: As the technology (MNT) provides general purpose manufacturing capability available from a factory the size of a desktop, it will render the current traditional method of production obsolete. If this is done exponentially, it will have enormous implications for the global economy, including unemployment, the end of the material goods trade and recession.

I have three recommendations worth considering in order to prevent or mitigate the above risks, namely (i) reformulating education, (ii) developing the legal system and ethics and (iii) promoting international cooperation in the field of MNT.
