I actually think some sort of regression is the only way to address this, but it would be very painful for all involved, and would have an economically protectionistic effect, which would probably spark wars. Big business loses its customers because they're all fending for themselves to a greater degree. The poorer classes, while more independent, have to adjust to a reversion to living standards similar to those of bygone eras after having been spoiled with modern comforts. It is extremely difficult. But there is no alternative that makes long term sense, economically, environmentally or psychologically.
