Radical Abundance: How a Revolution in Nanotechnology Will Change Civilization is a Book by Eric Drexler.

K. Eric Drexler is the founding father of nanotechnology—the science of engineering on a molecular level. In Radical Abundance, he shows how rapid scientific progress is about to change our world. Thanks to atomically precise manufacturing, we will soon have the power to produce radically more of what people want, and at a lower cost. The result will shake the very foundations of our economy and environment.

The book posits some stimulating questions about the impact of atomically precise manufacturing (APM) on civilization, clarifying just what APM really is, and then addressing the kind of social and economic consequences.
