335. shoddy everything

March 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

After WW2 and before Japanese competition upped the standards, we built shoddy cars, and the rest of the consumer world went with them.Cheap, not long lasting. We built housing and offices and stores that are cheap and won’t last long.

The result is, we have a replaceable society with no money to replace what is rotten and nearly exhausted. Just cleaning up would be extremely costly, and disposal an environmental  monster.

This could be a great opportunity if managed well, but more likely, with just in time junking, not going to go well.
