Monetary Evolution

The super rich could evolve into a different species from the poor, according to American futurologist Paul Saffo.

“The super-rich may evolve into a separate species entirely in the future due to enhancements in biotechnology and robotic engineering according to American futurologist Paul Saffo,” reports The Telegraph. Saffo’s theory is that the in the future people will be able to grow their own replacement organs, use genetic research to tackle hereditary health fears, and pop pills specifically tailored to their health needs. “But Mr Saffo says these improvements would only be affordable to the super-rich. And because of this, he says, advancements may lead to a divide between the classes and eventually could lead to the super-rich evolving into a different species entirely, leaving his not-so-rich counterpart behind.”
