From the Paper:

"We can all understand how we got here. Our modern global economically driven world was built on a foundation of shop until we drop. This mantra even bankrupted the Soviet Union. The system is designed to efficiently meet the needs of the consumers. This concept is not new or a modern day invention. Adam Smith held these same beliefs, the old invisible hand, as far back as 1776 in his classic work An Enquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. It does not matter that many people have heard of the book but few have ever cracked its pages. The concepts are timeless. Build stuff cheap and then sell it at a profit and then create the loop to occur trillions of times per day. The market driven economy has many advantages as more of the world's population now has the ability to 'move on up' into the middleclass. The world can move trillions of dollars from one place to another in seconds and cargo container ships as big as small towns can now move our goods and services to almost anywhere in the world almost as fast. But there are downsides to this economic freedom."
