This discussion shines a light on saying "if the next economy can put even more of the wealth into pay cheques of more people everywhere then we all win!"
Lets look back to this date often!
Having followed EA from what felt like early days, it does really feel like its moved to a new level and their projection for 10 yrs and 20 yrs out are quite extraordinary.
