Re: Theory on money in the 24th century

Temis, that bring up the old question, how much does it cost to operate a replicator? And it is not just a matter of eliminating scarcity, in America we're up to our knees in food, but it still cost money to buy at the store, because it cost money to produce and transport.

If it cost money to operate a replicator, then what it produces might be more conveniant, but it wouldn't be "free."
