could amount to US$80 billion per year for all developing countries, furthermore without
having to bear any additional cost.
Mining has diminished as a major factor in the US economy, a consequence of the
growth of other sectors, and the reduction in the prices for raw materials. Contrary to
many popular predictions, the prices of raw materials have fallen even as output and
population have grown. We will see later in this book that the fall in prices of raw

Chapter 11 - Pure competition in the long run.

While the aesthetic and creative process of interior design would
best be done by professional interior designers, our goal is to cre-
ate software capable of automatically generating furniture arrange-
ments for complex indoor scenes that are optimized to respect im-
portant ergonomic factors. This technique would be useful in multi-
player online games and other graphics applications requiring fully
automatic interior design with a high degree of realism.
