UK energy minister rejects 'waste of money' smart meters claim


Re: Surely will increase GDP?

"The cost of installation will affect GDP. Then when the burglars see that you are on holiday GDP will again be boosted when you have to buy replacements for what they nicked."

This is actually my argument in reverse. Make drugs legal. Sell them for cost price. GDP will flatten out because everything we own would only have to be stolen once.

I see where you're coming from though. With your economic plan GDP increases!
