Re: Probably the most asked Trek question

Greediness: Far less likely in a post scarcity society, and such an economy isn't unlikely at all given certain technological developments we may even have in a few decades (common 3D printing of almost anything, nanotech, dematerialization of products, etc) not centuries. Add to this a space faring society with nearly unlimited resources. Barring catastrophe Star Trek may actually have greatly underestimated post scarcity.
