Singularity Economics ~ Hanson on the Transformations of Humanity

Sam Koritz of Progress Daily spotted this remarkable World Product vs Time chart (below) by Bradford DeLong in a recent IEEE Spectrum article by Robin Hanson entitled Economics of the Singularity, all about societal discontinuities, transformative technologies, revolutionary speedups in economic growth, and more. Highly recommended.
