Molecular manufacturing … a bad dream?

Is technology driving a “disruptive and unstable arms race?”
If you study the words of our own U.S. Rep Chris Gibson (below in this blog) you’d probably come to that conclusion.
Just as sinister is the way molecular manufacturing is being sold to residents of the area around Albany, NY — as an “economic savior.”
The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN) points out that, unlike the “industrial revolution” that once saw companies like General Electric prosper, molecular manufacturing boom will be compresssed into a few years.
CRN also points out environmental damage, social disruption, the destruction of non-nanotech companies, etc.:
Because of the advent of nanotechnology, we believe new companies will displace a high percentage of today’s leading companies. The majority of the companies in today’s Dow Jones industrials Index are unlikely to be there 20 years from now. (Excerpted with permission from “Big Money in Thinking Small”, authored by Michael Mauboussin and Kristen Bartholdson.)
There is a lot to think about … and CRN offers much food for thought:
