externalities and solutions
Our economic system is designed to solve various friction points with incremental improvements — but there are limited equivalent mechanisms for stakeholders (rather than customers) to have their needs solved. It’s the purpose of regulation to adjust incentives to limit negative externalities. Perhaps what’s (also) needed is an infrastructure for identifying and solving externalities through non-regulatory means. Like Kickstarter for externalities.
[the best sentence of which is the closing note: ”I wonder how many other small negative externalities are out there waiting to be solved.”]    Tweet
