So I think it's pretty clear that a great deal of the worker shortage has to do with folks experimenting with capital markets on their stimmy checks and gaining a degree of financial independence from wage slavery.

I haven't done deep research on this, and I could be totally off base. I'm looking around at a lot of the kids who were in the startup community a couple years ago who are showing off ENS domains with net worths in the millions... these kids aren't even college grads.

It shows that we can have a functional society with a small fraction of the worker pool we currently have. Wage slavery isn't requisite for a functional society.

If only we had sound money by default, imagine how much further along we could be as a civilization...
