"A few years ago Manu Saadia, a longtime Star Trek fan, went looking for
a book about the economics of Star Trek. When he couldn’t find one, he
decided to write his own. The result, Trekonomics, has drawn praise from
economists such as Brad DeLong and Joshua Gans. Saadia says that Star
Trek is one of the few science fiction universes that grapple with the
idea that money may someday become obsolete."

“Oh no, what are we going to do if we have to close everything down
for a year?”
