Speakers ranging from Ray "Singularity" Kurzweil to Dan "Back of the Napkin" Roam to James "The Information" Gleick to Susan "President of the ACLU" Herman to Art "Scenarios" Kleiner take on the toughest issues facing us today so we can figure out how to navigate to tomorrow.

"there will still be money" he says, but does not argue for the view. I wonder why he would think so, if we are talking about a communist society? What would you use the money for if we all have what we need? Money takes no part in filesharing, an economic system in place that seems to be communistic as good as anything? Isnt money basically a system to devide the rich from the poor? a system to ensure economic classes?
can a society with universal wealth be a system of economic classes?
