^ please elaborate a bit? Why not?
Um, why a privately owned seastead (and who owns it? because whoever owns it is naturally in control) should care about America's money problems? Maybe not America's, but global economy will affect whether people are willing to invest in something like seasteading.
If the seastead plans on being part of the global economy, yes, it is important. Otherwise, I see no reason why they should worry about it. I'd tell you my opinion on whether or not they should be a part of the global economy, but at the moment, I don't have enough knowledge on the subject to defend it.
However, we should not just "suck it up." I shall elaborate on GrassTypes idea.
Projects that would be good ... refining solar pannels, finding a viable replacement for gasoline, schools in poor urban areas, teaching crafts, factories in America so the majority of the country's products are not imported and made in other countries, gardening (vegetables, fruit, ect) in schools, and someone knowledgable to teach the kids about it ...
I'm no economy expert, nor is this a thread about how to fix America's economy.
I agree with you 100%. Those projects should definitely be pursued in America and around the world. That doesn't mean you shouldn't invest in a seastead, especially if that seastead were to utilize every single one of those projects. If the person(s) funding the seastead had no intentions of spending their money on America anyway, then would it be a problem?
I'll respond to the rest of the posts here. I promise. I just wanted to quickly bump this up first (and it's also very late).
