The economic backlash of all this experimentation is going to cost global economies trillion of dollars in losses.
I hope this is a bad dream, or unforeseen glitch, or the result of some engineer going haywire and no one catching it yet. That said, there is one company that will see unheard of profits if this is implemented ~ can you even imagine how the bidding on AdWords will go, as freaked-out webmasters scramble to get onto page 1 (since there will be no page 2). We're talking $$$ through the stratosphere going into GooglePlex, and out of our pockets. And if you're not on page 1 and cannot afford the new AdWords page 1 bid levels, then bend over and kiss your @$$ goodbye ~ you're gone gone gone.
