    Although I definitely do see the benefits of such an economic system, I believe that it might just be an inconvenience to many people as it ultimately brings about a boatload of what are basically subscriptions, things that generally don't have a good reputation with regards to the public. At some point it is simply no longer in the benefit of an individual to keep an item and throwing it away may just make more financial sense than constantly paying for it. However, I do see the potential gains from this system as this will push companies to ultimately keep updating and improving their products in order to keep their customers.

    This is actually beneficial for companies because they can hold on to customer for years. For example if the bulb gets fused instead of buying a new bulb of some other company.. customer would have to use the bulb of same company as he is already paying subscription for it. This is also a downside for the customers though as it would be tough for them to switch companies of same product..

    You use silica, tungsten , carbon, steel , copper to make incandescent light bulbs. These junior reporters are completely illiterate.

    It's possible for a product like apparel to take longer time for acceptance than a light bulb.
    Completely on board!

    I like recycling, but this just seems like a way to get more money out of stupid gullible suckers.
    The poor lease, rent and borrow everything. The rich OWN wealth. Rule 1: Stack wins, not losses.
    I would never contract these fools to 'lease' me light bulbs. There has to be a better way.
