Need reading recs

I'm writing some stories in a universe where they have machines called fabbers, that - while working differently - basically do what Star Trek replicators do. Most kinds of fabbers make food and inanimate objects, though MediFabbers can fix wounds and even replace missing limbs or make new organs. Most models have recyclers built in, and the military even has portable fabbers (which are expensive).

Anyway, a friend and I were discussing post-fabber economy, because I was trying to figure out how people would make money in that economy. We had some ideas, but basically she told me to look for books and stories that had already been written about similar worlds, but she couldn't remember any offhand. So I'm looking for reading recommendations.
