Small is not always beautiful
In the light of this, nanotechnology's best use according to the Nanotech Institute, should be to create a world of abundance where no one is lacking in basic needs and, together with this, high priority must be given to the efficient and economical distribution of the products and services created by nanotechnology.
Military research must be limited to defence and security systems and not for aggression. Besides, scientists experimenting with nanotechnology must have a solid grounding in ethics, ecology and public safety.
Also, business models in the field should incorporate long-term, sustainable practices; industry leaders should be collaborative and self-regulating, but also support public education in the sciences and reasonable legislation to deal with social and moral issues associated with nanotechnology.
