Move beyond the exurbs into agraria. Housing tracts are now small farm tracts. Instead of non productive 2200 sq ft lots, each home has 2 acres of arable land.Â Â The stay at home dad and the telecommuting mom both fund the household. People build and create goods, and can feed themselves as well as trade at the market. There is still the mall and the theatre, but WiMax and hydrogen generators let us live loosely coupled with the utilities.
We need gardeners and nanotechnologies. Real estate developers and skilled craftspeople and traders. We need lawyers and communications specialists to turn the consuming family, into a producing partnership.
I need builders and financiers to create Agraria.
