Association Survivor

I was just going to comment on Ben's latest post, but then figured it needed an entire post of its own.

I still go back to my original statement. There will still be a need for associations/institutions to handle larger scale projects that require economies of scale and true, professional management. Many of these things do fall into Ben's category of "problems that most people don't really care too much about, but that need to be handled." But what we are really talking about is opportunity costs. Economics 101. It's not that people don't care. It is that people care about other stuff more. They care about their jobs, their families and having fun.

So, in a way Ben, I guess you are right. Associations will continue to thrive because people have better things to do.
