It should be "the economics of transition to ultraproductivity".
What worries me is the concentration of power. Concentration of power
is never a good thing. It's never a good thing even if you've got the
power, because then someone else will take it away and use it against you.
It's the basic flaw in the capitalist game - it works great as long as
people keep playing, but if one person wins, you wind up with a stable
dictatorship. Unless someone violates the libertarian rules, of course.
I think it may be an error to consider anything except the very early
stages from an economic perspective.
