I don't see how self-destruction is inevitable. China has shown a

Its a Very big planet and is hardly "over utilized". The biggest issue
for the starving nations is not getting food..but having it delivered
without some local warlord stealing it and selling it.
The biggest issue on the planet is not food, but drinking water. We have
LOTS of water..but most places have no way to get potable water to the

to grow more food than we can eat, make more cars than we can

The old economy is geared to shortages and the allocation of
scarce goods. The "free market" provides very rational
solutions, but unfortunatly those questions no longer apply. The
problem now seems to be how to match up areas of excess
production capacity with areas of excess of consumer demand.
As demonstrated in the skyrocketing consumer debt of the
"developed" countries, the ability to [re]pay is no longer a
