Only as viewed through the current lens of cornucopian growth based free market economic principles. As fossil energy and finite resources slip away from us, there will be less and less societal surplus and we will once again be forced back to living at a scale of dependency on real time solar energy flows and muscle power. Which will service a much smaller population. 1/4 to 1/3 the current size. 100-200 years from now. Getting there painlessly is the big question.
