After the Gold Rush
Third Flatiron Publishing




Description
After the Gold Rush – Future SF, climate change, economics

Complications of booms and bubbles. Possible topics might include

o Effects of accelerated culture (e.g., what the Internet’s doing to society)
o Ecological consequences caused by human over-expansion, such as climate disasters
o Economics: The Dutch had the tulip craze; California had the Gold Rush (a weird Western might work here.) Today, it’s cryptocurrency and supply chains. In future planets or civilizations, what will become the most valuable commodity?

I dreamed I saw the silver space ships…The loading had begun (Neil Young, “After the Gold Rush”)
