*one of our commenters above, mentions the transition period (immerman), I believe he's spot-on with that comment.
There WILL be a transition period where there will be near world-uproar and revolt amongst people because of the unfair balance of money and power. It's the same scenario that happens in a kindergarten. Why would the well off kids give up their toys to the begging, screaming fleabag of an uncared for kid who don't really see the fairness in this? Because if he doesn't, violence will occur at some point, and the rich kid will have to realize he needs to share his toys in order to have a good balanced life with everyone around him. Who wants to party alone anyway?
Open Source is a great example of this. Lawyers fighting like mad for the companies to own and patent code, and Open Source people fighting equally hard to keep source code open and free to everyone. Now we see that Open Source is slowly becoming the acceptable way to spread code and ideas, and the only thing that will bring home the bacon, is actual work done on request, by companies or individuals...and all coders will get their fair share by doing individual requests, perhaps installing and maintaining some companys hardware & software, this happens more and more today.
Same thing with goods and services, entertainment and so forth. It'll be a heck of a ride though, and if you want to avoid being poor in the transition period, you'd better stay on top of your game, whatever that is to you.
