This film does not adequately address economics. It is also tainted by hindsight and does not give due appreciation to black box designing (design in the abstract without recourse to hindsight).

It's something that rarely crosses our mind - that everything we use was designed by someone, someone with an invested interest in either making something better, filling a gap or adding unique features to items that are in every day use. The sad thing is that all the time and effort that goes into making these still doesn't change the fact that most of it ends up in the garbage - and there is a bit of a discussion of art vs. practicality, unique vs. longevity.
