the problem is, the problem is dealt with after it has happened, instead of limiting the effects in the first place.
I truly am impressed with how much money governments waste and societies demand for “cheap” at the cost of the future. We use to make cars that last, fridges and stoves that didn’t need replaced or fixed after a couple years …but now we want cheap houses at the cost of them being easily damaged in the future.
How much would be added to the US GDP if all houses were fitted with hurricane proof windows? Problem then becomes, over enough time when people don’t need new windows to replace the ones that stand up during a disaster, jobs are lost.

The government largess knows no bounds – can’t have those banks lose 1 penny or franc or Deutschemark or drachma – the Euro they are saving at all cost.13 Sep '17 at 10:49 pm #11708
