The future of crime
Yeah but if you steal 5 smartphones a day and sell them for 40 dollars each you would be making 52k/year. I think we would be lucky just to see humans last another 30 years, much less see the evolution of crime into a more technological age. Crime has been evolving since the first societies, its doubtful you would see much difference between now and 2 years from now.

What is the 1 Question you'd ask or Idea you'd share with the TED Team ?
It wold seem as though almost everyone is concerned about the 'green' movement and reducing our environmental impact, however the most detrimental issue plaguing our planet is the rapid expansion of the human race. It would be a glorious day if we could save every life in every third world country or even domestically, however if such a thing were to occur the scarcity of resources would be ever more apparent. One could even speculate the explosive population boom is the equivalent of the housing market in 2008, just be prepared for it to collapse in a similar way. Realistically, how can we combat the catastrophic consequences of species over-saturation(human)?
