  2. Exactly so!

    (They may also make mud.)

  3. How much unskilled labor is there in terraforming that can’t be performed more easily by mass-produced Roombas with shovels?

  4. It suddenly occurs to me that an immortal wouldn’t charge much for six years of someone’s life.

    Was wondering how that could possibly be cheaper than a cornucopia machine and some millennia-old bot blueprints.

  5. Again, the thing is, this is not Core, First Tier, or Second Tier markets we’re talking about here. We’re in the emerging markets, or even the unemerged. They don’t have the tech to support large-scale deployment of cornucopias, and even when it comes to buying it, the problem they run into is where would they get the hard currency to pay for it?

    But grunt labor is functionally valueless anywhere except the emerging markets, and they have plenty of that to throw at the problem. Very little of which is immortal, because that also costs hard currency.

    (And so they can save their precious hard currency reserves for things like weapons, Presidental junkets, and extranet porn.)
