Dilbert founder, Scott Adams, proposes “Creating a Low-Cost Life“.
“Candidates for President of the United States talk about taxes and budgets and social services. But no one ever talks about lowering the cost of living. And that could be a big omission because American society has no way to take care of all the under-employed, unemployed, and retired people of tomorrow,” says Adams.
Creating a low-cost life “isn’t the job of government. And private industry is focused on keeping profit margins high, so don’t expect any solutions from that group”.
Adams’ vision is “some sort of massive open-source engineering and design project.”
