Rather than Toffler who mainly knocked off McLuhan (and poorly )see William
Irwin Thompson who sees economics as a shadow form of ecology and the strivings
for a healthy cultural-ecology being played in a political arena stuggling to
internalize old ecologies.  And I return to my comment can money lose it's
heigtened aspects in the nacent world information society.  In a service ecolgy
don't the differences of rich and poor merge?
