True, at least lately, thanks for sharing. There is no shortage of visions of the world we would like to have, and yet not much of them have happened. And yet they remain temptingly within reach, a carefully dangled carrot.
Since in general, big business gets to decide what to invest in, based on what they think will make the most profit. This is not the same as what consumers want, and ironically, it is not even in the best interests of the business.
When people get to have adequate disposable income again, then amazing things will start to happen, because then they will be back in a position to demand what they want, rather than just accepting what big business wishes to offer.
After all, it is people, not big business, who define value.
