    If our world had honest leadership:

    * no poverty or starvation
    * everyone prosperous, at least at the upper middle class
    * no wars
    * higher educational level as a whole

    For me, talking about a class level is pointless.
    All the classifications these days.
    How about just being happy, and loving.
    Money. The very demise of this world we live in.

    The creation of a middle class in China and India is where future consumers will come from. From people who, in many cases, are already here or are one generation away. This will put enormous pressure on the planets' resources, which have largely been relatively easily and cheaply available to the American middle class up to this point. Essentially, we're going to have a lot more people pulling up to gas pumps, whether we can see them or not. That's why the mantra of always calling for an increase in population here to solve our problems is foolish. The population is already here, inasmuch as there are a lot of people on earth. And, they're catching up economically. It's going to be quite a ride.
