Bullshit. The first world easily produces enough. It may in fact have to
produce less under any sensible eco-socialist order. Its rate of production
is already so high that it has to monopolize the resources of the entire
planet. What happens when the rest of the world wants this standard of
living? Will more reserves of oil be discovered on Mars? In this day, if
you are a pro-growth-in-the-first-world socialist, you might as well be
waving banners for Clinton.

The change in the first world will be in quality of life, not standard of
living.
