I believe the issue of the future (including in the US) will be land reform.
It is important to have at least 30% of the people on the land. I
personally would like to see more than that. Corporate control of water,
materials (ie seeds), and land is frightening and very dangerous.
Oil is fueling agribusiness at present. It won't last forever, hopefully.
