3D Printers will be at a level of industrial production capability by 2020 and farming could be robotic and 100% automated / sustainable in local (per city) farm-biospheres... you are correct though, the real economic problem is resources. But all that's needed is changing what people want and how they consume (specifically, no more animal products). Capitalism is in the way of that. And as you correctly surmise.. the real knack of the problem is how to begin this change at all without having 95% of the population starve to death or revolt.

You don't need infinite resources though, you need people who don't want infinite stuff to consume and people who don't consume stuff that can never be sustainable.. like the industrial meat production as 1 example (there are thousands more).

Part of that is a 100% recycle and 100% repair initiative. Devices need to last forever, and if they don't, be repaired. Nothing should ever be thrown away into a landfill. Materials that can't be recycled should be banned, no matter what advantage they give. Food needs to be produced locally. Trade of food is forbidden unless there is an emergency. Electricity, Heating, Water. Everything needs to be localized, sustainable and FREE (but not unlimited) for the local populace.

Technological development should be focusing on space exploration & welfare of the race / sustainability.

And more importantly, people need to be given a new vision for the future first.
