Neo-con economists happen to argue exactly that way.  (A famous one

neo-con asked on camera: "Why does Boeing need engineers, anyway?"!)
Makes you wonder who is paying the piper...

At the end of the day, people still have to eat, and live somewhere in
the physical world -- and that world is _finite_ (and disappearing),
no matter how much the virtual utopianists are fantasizing about fabbers...
