By Wallace Freeman From the point of view of the manufacturers they better hope it DOESN'T work to meet consumer demand for their product/service because if it does they're probably going the way of the buggy whip industry. Manufacturers of buggy whips can probably meet consumer demand by only working an hour per week.
