Abundance vs. Scarcity

This is the conflict of the 21st century…It comes down to people that believe in scarcity, people that believe in abundance. That’s what all conflict in business will be defined as. And it will become sharper with an economic or a social calamity. It will become even more defined, because people will galvanize themselves. And people who believe in abundance will throw down materialism.

Toffler wrote this in 1980. I wonder how much of his future-predicting he thinks came true?
