on June 12, 2010 :
This is clever and funny, as Mr. Lewis usually is. However, it's based on a pair of mistaken premises:
1) It overlooks the Conservation of Mass;
2) It overlooks the reason we replace rather than repair, in those venues where the former practice has displaced the latter one.
But perhaps it's unfair for an old physicist-economist-crank like me to pour cold water on a charming tale such as this, just because its cautionary aspects are ill-aimed. John Brunner wrote several magnificent novels based on mistaken premises -- he was a socialist, so that was foreordained -- and nevertheless, they were as entertaining as fiction can be.
As usual, Mr. Lewis, delightful.
