Towards Eco-Affluence

Abstract:
Jurgen Reinhoudt reviews The Meaning of the 21st Century, by James Martin.

Nanotechnology is set to evolve by great leaps, as is medicine assisted by genetic technology. Similarly, rapid advances in highly targeted bio-pharmacology paint the possibility of a "brave new world," and Martin's predictions--well-researched and thorough--are certain to offer much food for thought for bio-ethicists. This is just as well: ethicists and policymakers ought to consider the implications of coming exponential technological changes now, to avoid being overtaken by paradigm-shifting discoveries.
