Prof Hawking’s predictions for humanity have been bleak in recent months. In January, he cautioned developments in science and technology are producing “new ways things can go wrong”. He also estimated self-sustaining human colonies on Mars would not be constructed for another 100 years, meaning the human race must be “very careful” in the time before then.

One bad aspect is that because the Government and these large corporations are in control, through laws & regulations they make it so they are the only ones that can handle the supply. Their competition is effectively neutered or kept small in a local market only. It usually a revolving door between banks / corporations & Governments.
