What if... Someone invented teleport...

What if... someone invent teleport.

Basically you can teleport anything or anyone anywhere on earth, maybe even to moon or Mars, just ignore all technological difficulties for now.

The question is, what would be economical consequences, with teleport we don't need any transport and all related businesses are not needed. Lots of people would lose their job. At the same time this bring almost unlimited opportunities and grow.

Also should inventor give for free blue prints to build teleport to anyone without any control or hide it so no one would do anything stupid as people are not ready for this kind of technology ?

In that case humans would spread their footprint all across the galaxy.There would be Inter planetary trade systems, resources exchange companies, employment etc ..... which is economically beneficial.
