Well, here we are in 2019. The world economy is still chugging along, the internal combustion engine still powers our daily lives, and fiat currencies are still the most popular means of asset exchange. (In another 10 years these observations may need updating).
Do not get me wrong, the world is changing, and its changing fast! The way people interact and use technology is shifting at an alarming rate, but probably what is more profound is technology has changed how we live our lives.
