Tyler Cowen’s view of the medium-term future for the US

Is here.  He heads towards Kurzweil I think with this:

People will write profound books and papers on how and why “status quo bias” has strengthened, and then one day some new technological development will change everything.

Read the whole blog entry, it’s really good. I sure hope he’s right about his version of “The Singularity“, because otherwise, I’m afraid climate change or nuclear war will bite us badly enough to rule out a technological fix.
