Technology must reach the logical conclusion.

This is a good interview with Larry Page, via the Financial Times. Larry describes how reducing inefficiency is the goal of tech, which we must take to it's logical conclusion. The inextricable nature the Singularity and Post-Scarcity, or the identicalness of the two terms, is very evident in some of the quotes, although nothing is directly addressed.

The FT wrote (Oct 2014): "With the right focus and application, he implies, there’s nothing that can’t be improved and made to run more efficiently."

And: "The prospect of millions of jobs being rendered obsolete, private-home values collapsing and the prices of everyday goods going into a deflationary spiral hardly sounds like a recipe for nirvana. But in a capitalist system, he suggests, the elimination of inefficiency through technology has to be pursued to its logical conclusion."

Larry Page said: "You’re going to have some very amazing capabilities in the economy. When we have computers that can do more and more jobs, it’s going to change how we think about work. There’s no way around that. You can’t wish it away."
