Without the consumer economy plain-old machines would have "unleashed 
mass unemployment." 

Limits and robotics combine to make consuming enough to keep workers
busy an act of suicidal folly.

The innovation we need to to adjust to some old innovations like
machines in a new way, and to forget other innovations that have been
harmful. The consumer economy was an innovation from hell.
