I saw an interview with Leonard Nimoy where he spoke of being in a mall talking on his cell phone when he witnessed a kid comment to their folks that there stood Mr. Spock with his communicator. The setting of the Star Trek story takes place in the mid 22nd century with 22nd century technology, yet, within 30 years of the creation of the Star Trek series the technologies of Star Trek are quickly being met in the early years of the 21st century.

After watching this clip I began to question how long this level of advancement can continue before the wheels fall of the wagon and everything comes crashing down. Is this what we are beginning to see in regards to the world economy?

What are the economic, social, and political implications of this video?

Your thoughts, please.
