Unless you've discovered how to properly manipulate negative energy, 
Earth happens to be a CLOSED system. Every cellphone and digital 
thingie is a little more slavery and death in the Congo where they dig 
up the rocks you need to make them.

And if your statement is true, why did global manufacturing jobs drop 
11% last year - America actually had less job loss (by %) then China. 
That means for Joe Average, no matter where you were life got worse. 
China is coming out on every mundane and scientific front and telling 
the west "no thanks, we'll just design and build it ourselves, or did 
you forget we hate you?". They sure as hell realize it's a closed 
system, and so does India.

Americans will continue to live in their happy little "everyone wins" 
fantasy world where almost everyone is 1 paycheck from broke until ... 
I wont ruin the surprise for you ;)

But that's no worry, as soon as China and India "westernize" the 
Earth's atmosphere will turn into a dark brown sludge anyway.
