Don’t you hate when so much extra wealth is added to society, that the economy tanks?
Yes, that is what The Daily Star says would happen if an asteroid made up of nickel and iron was harvested and brought back to Earth. They claim the asteroid’s materials are worth $10,000 quadrillion.
This would be enough to cause the world’s economy – worth $73.7 trillion – to collapse altogether.
They don’t bother to explain why these extra resources would sink the economy.
