Reply To: changes in the quality of goods over time


Give some examples as to what do you mean more concretely. You mean like, computer parts break down faster? In some of technical products, producers have learn to optimize better, so one way to reduce the price is to shorten the lifespan of a computer or a music box. Why would you make a newest laptop work impeccably for 15 years (and they could achieve this easily, if they only wanted it) if after 4-5 years it’s going to be soo obsolete? Anyway, start from there…
