Will eBooks replace books or Government intervention prevent it?
The benefits of eBooks by Amazon Kindle(Nasdaq:AMZN), Sony eBook(NYSE:SNE) and a few new arrivals in creating eBooks is obviously about the enviroment. Books needs trees,chemicals,energy and etc. just to produce paper(not including inks,glue, and laminate).
The negatives is jobs jobs and more jobs. The loggers that cut the trees, truckers who transport logs to pulp mills, millworkers making pulp, truckers who transport finished paper to printing presses, printers who print, binders who bind, truckers transport books to warehouses, warehouse distributors distibuting to:
retailers selling to consumers.
libraries lending to patrons.
The Government has a tough choice on one hand they must choose a growing number of enviromentally concious voters and on the other hand preserving industries that create high paying jobs. HOW WILL THE GOVERNMENT INTERVENE TO GET MAXIMUM POPULAR POINTS FROM VOTERS OF BOTH SIDES? (if this situation ever arises)
