Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
...once the neolib economy has finally crashed and burned enough times...

...there may not be enough left to enable us to start over in a meaningful way - possibly not until current population levels have been divided by ten or more. In another forty years fossil fuels will be vary scarce and a large portion of the world's population will be, perforce, using what ever sustainable energy they can manage. If we have not built enough renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, tidal and geothermal a lot of the world will look like current day Romania or Bulgaria, except with less liveable cities and an overall lower level of complexity. Universal health care and education beyond elementary and middle school will be a thing of the past - only a few will have access to such things.
