While I think the idea of an ideal or greatest world is very subjective and dependant on the person. I think this is the greatest world possible in our current state.
Economically. the world is in wild flux(just like almost always), but a recent report implied that the spending to earning ratio was normalizing to a certain consumer extent in some aspects, but remains out of balance in others.
Politically, the world has always been a crapshoot. Everyone seems to hate everyone for one damn reason or another. Will it eventually end up like to doomsayers believe? Maybe, but I doubt it. I think everyone will remain on edge for a very long time, just like always.
Personally. I believe this is as good as it can get. You'll always have those who want things to shift to the edges of the political spectrum. But as long as there are people who want to find a middle ground I think things will be okay. In my personal life, I've considered disappearing into the vastness of nature and becoming some goofy hermit or some such thing more than once. But I suspect I'd get lonely and commit suicide, so that's out!
