What would the world look like if everybody had everything they wanted or needed? Trekonomics, the first book from financial journalist Felix Salmon's imprint Pipertext, approaches scarcity economics by coming at it backwards ― through thinking about a universe where scarcity does not exist. Delving deep into the details and intricacies of 24th century society, Trekonomics explores post-scarcity and whether we, as humans, are equipped for it. What are the prospects of automation and artificial intelligence? Is there really no money in Star Trek? Is Trekonomics at all possible?
