Hello. I've been wondering for some time whether an isolated, mature society is sustainable.
The population is stable.
Everyone already has what they need, so most consumption regards food, utilities, and transportation. The only new consumers are college graduates.
This imaginary society is self-sufficient in everything.
This society cannot engage in trade with other countries.
Can this society provide decent-paying jobs for everyone? By decent-paying jobs I mean jobs that allow you to pay your rent/mortgage, food, utilities, transportation, and perhaps 10% extra for unexpected costs. Education and health are universal.
