    David Brin points out that the Japanese invented Just in Time delivery, which means that there’s an increasing advantage to moving goods directly into “warehouses” that are mobile… and bigger ones are better. He then goes on to point out that the Japanese have learned something in the aftermath of Fukushima, and are now moving AWAY from just in time delivery because it’s efficient, has tax advantages† and FRAGILE. He likes this analogy: A marathon runner, runway model and couch potato find themselves on a raft a long way from land. Who survives? (No fair bringing up cannibalism.)

    † Because warehouses and the goods in them are often taxed as “property” by political entities that have a property tax. He suggests that this tax is a disincentive to doing the (correct?) robust thing.
