Title: profits for guarding ice wall
Post by: Johannes on October 02, 2008, 06:55:20 AM
we all know that rational human beings do not do things unless the marginal benefit is equal or greater than the marginal cost...

The cost for defending the ice wall would be enormous... You would have to buy aircraft, employ thousands of men and as far as we know there is no benefit.. Why would anyone want to guard the ice wall?

I don't know many people who believe it is actively guarded.

Erasmus made some calculations for the actual cost assuming the massive structure is indeed guarded by military personnel. The link to his calculations is inside the FAQ.
