For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

Capitalism in space: Several large hotel chains are putting up new hotels in the Boca Chica area near SpaceX’s new spaceport, expressly because they are anticipating a tourist demand once launches begin.

None of this is a surprise. It is good news, nonetheless.

    Crazy how capitalism begets more capitalism.

    Kyle,
    Socialists look at an economy as a pie that has to be distributed (from each according to his ability, to each according to his need). Free market capitalists look at an economy and realize that there is a need for another pie; then bake it.

    These new hotels are that other pie. Eventually, someone will realize that another restaurant is needed for all those workers and tourists, and he will build that, too.
