Summary (From the publisher):

When Amadeus Amalfi invented the Fusion Power Device, the earth blossomed, for when power is cheap so is everything else. Soon robots did all the work, and people had all the "fun! fun! fun!" But every pipeline has two ends, and despite the stunning triumph of technology, humanity's success with social engineering was no greater than it had been. Soon the robot factories began to bury mankind in luxury, and the New Poor were forced to spend their lives in frantic consumption so that their masters could live the Simple Life. And in the process the robots were burning out our world.
