    Awesome presentation, so much to say however I will limit it

    1. The world does have a chance to become sustainable as I often felt that population growth was going to kill the world
    2. The leftist economic policies that rely on continued economic growth will become even more unsustainable than they are now due to eventual economic capacity or peak capacity being met, probably 30 years after peak population
    3. As a result of the impending reduction in population growth new economic theories will have to be developed
