All business which is in need of interference freedom ( which is basicly all business) will sooner or later end up to build its production and investigation sites out of interference reach on the ocean.
The more interferers appear in form of Politicians, redtaping groups, pressure groups, regulation groups, contrary interest groups, the more intense is the quest for a new frontier where things can be done and achived by default with nobody tortious interfering in the venture.
The move out on the ocean seeking interference freedom is already visible in its first steps | sandbank building | floating industies | oil | brewery | interference free server centers | stemcell research | etc…[/quote]
And real estate too - in the luxury segment superyachts are a better option in comfort compared to the landside equivalent of a large house. In part because design adapted to the marine environment brushes sclerotic traditions in a single stroke.
An Intentionally pricey house in California is designed to simulate life in a large boat.
Billionaires, he realized, spend eight weeks of the year on their hundred-million-dollar yachts “but then they only live in a $30-million home.”
That discrepancy, he reasoned, didn’t make sense, so he created a home with finishes and furnishings reminiscent of a mega-yacht and a matching price point to boot
But even the super luxury segment can’t afford such houses in just about every country (neither can society or the environment) so they opt for a movable palace built in Italy, registered in Bermuda, and towed to places where such modern convenience would be impossible in land, such as France or the Seychelles, and eventually the entire landmass.
if the move is indeed inevitable, part of our challenge is to make it as affordable as every other mass technology.
