HOW TO MAXIMIZE PRIDE -- Modern thought and social science are grounded in the objective of maximizing "happiness", "utility", "utility of wealth", "pleasure", "experiences instead of possessions" or similar matters that are both selfish and over which you have little control. They turned out to be both mathematically and morally clumsy. Switch your objective to maximize "pride" and see how different --and more controllable -- things become.

Tim O' Reilly - Renegade Economist Talkshow - YouTube
Tom O' Reilly rocks ...

Post-Modern Economics is about Supply-Demand, artificial economics.
But digital economy and green/renewable energy (future) can be and is to a certain extent abundant. Which changes lots of relationships in-between the economy.
On the same page, the world, people take lots of things for granted, as free, that isn't free - that is actually scarce (clean water, oil (and all by products), time, ...

Bagehot: Generation Xhausted | The Economist
Begin with the early 20s, which across the recessionary West, but perhaps especially in Britain, with its high housing costs, are grimmer than in the past: 20-somethings are often indebted, jobless and stuck in an involuntarily protracted adolescence. The Office for National Statistics reckons that nearly 3m people between 20 and 34 were living with their parents last year, almost half a million more than in 1997.

The “sandwich generation”—caught between adolescent children and senescent parents—used to be in their mid-40s. Now the oldies are living and staying healthy for longer, and so requiring care later. Carers UK, a charity, calculates that the number of pensioners who are themselves carers (of either partners or their own ancient parents) is rising fast. Thus 55—an age when, in the past, people were liberated from immediate family obligations to rediscover fun—may soon be the new 45. The sandwich generation is getting stale.

And parents in late 30s; late family + career.

Paul Zak: Trust, morality - and oxytocin - YouTube
Where does morality come from -- physically, in the brain? In this talk neuroeconomist Paul Zak shows why he believes oxytocin (he calls it "the moral molecule") is responsible for trust, empathy, and other feelings that help build a stable society.
