Every month, I spend hundreds of dollars on various subscription services for life and business.
Subscriptions that have stuck around for years represent thousands of dollars of investment into something I don’t technically own.
But that might not be a bad thing – especially in a world with finite resources.
If we were to move subscription services into the physical world, where we could only lease products rather than own them – our resources would be better managed.
It would disincentivize senseless accumulation and reduce the sunk cost of poor purchase decisions.
It’s weird to revisit the concept of #ownership, but it might hold the key for how we can thrive in a resource-constrained world.
