That is not agility, the market is merely fickle and panicky. One day your favorite product is on the shelf, next day, oops, not enough buyers to keep it in stock. So sorry. Regardless, both the market and the government are in our image, a result of our choices.

...give us another 1000+ years to focus on solving fusion and/or proper renewable energy research/storage etc?

Because, at the present growth rate, we only have about 400, if we do everything right. The planet only has enough surface area to dissipate so much heat. After that, things get pretty dramatic.

Influence. You have the same influence over the government as you do over the market. Actually, because of the *one person, one vote* thing, you have much more so, but both require a collective effort, amongst you and your neighbors. You can't win if you don't play. You do know that if all the non-voters voted as a block, they could completely wipe out the ruling parties in a single day. That's influence!

Iceland doesn't need 'investments'. They have enough free energy to do what they want. They stole nothing, they only took back what was theirs. The 'depositors' were foreign banks profiteering from junk bonds, not real people. The 'debt' is phony, a fraud, existing only in the fantasy derivatives markets. And why does Iceland need to 'grow'? What an absurd concept! No, Iceland is in a much better position than anybody else.
