The Zero Marginal Cost Society
(Redirected from Zero Marginal Cost Society)
- The argument for zero marginal cost has significant limitations for hardware-intensive enterprises - such as roads. They cost $1M/mile to build, and $500k/mile to maintain per year!!! See Cost of Building Highways. How to reconcile? Maybe with better design, or transition to other technologies (such as non-contact highways with drones) - then the argument for zero marginal cost could hold. So this may be reconciled only via lifetime design technologies.
