  1. Here’s the basic question framed in already existing infrastructure – our electric grid.

    How much of the country would have never been wired if it was purely a economic business decision?

    How about roads? do electric (cable and internet) companies own the land along the road where they string their lines?

    If they had to actually buy that right-of-way how many more areas would be lacking electricity because it’s not economic?

    Have electric companies benefited from govt subsidies to expand their network?
