Welcome to the precision economy
More with less
More results with less inputs
Mankind is about to turn upside down economic self-evident truths, by the breakthrough of precision technologies like solar energy and precision agriculture, and by precision social arrangements like sharing instead of owning. So far, mankind could only produce more wealth by using more feedstock, depleting the earth’s resources and polluting the environment. Precision will end this practice. Precision will enable us to produce products better tuned to the needs of consumers, from less resources.
An era comes to an end. Ever since the start of the industrial revolution, mankind could only produce more, using more. Produce more food from more land. Produce more consumer goods from more resources, processing more ore that required more land to mine it. Using ever more fossil fuels, shipped in ever growing quantities to the world’s industrial centres. But the advent of precision will put all this to an end. We will be going to produce more, using less.

Entirely to the point
‘More with Less’ by Alle Bruggink and Diederik van der Hoeven reads as an exciting adventure novel. Quite a rare event in literature on technology. The authors take as their subject a broad spectrum of technologies that will have a major influence on our daily life. ‘Precision’ appears to be the secret, in the fields of energy, agriculture, chemistry, transport, and the medical sciences.
