Peter says

I have this silly idea that we will realize that we have all been living beyond our means and agree to make some changes. In a perfect world the pain of the changes will be spread as widely as possible.

You are an optimist. I wouldn't call it silly.

In the worst case we will all have more wealth than 99% of all the humans who have ever lived. We should be able to fashion interesting and comfortable lives if we work diligently.

I heartily agree. I think it would be great if every American went to Mexico City for a good close-up look at the slums there, and then had it pointed out that Mexico is a rich country.
