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 ?

  • Sep 19 2013: If someone invented teleport no body would know because the government would immediately take it and then hide it from the public. Then when people start spreading these rumors then everyone would take it as just a myth.
