It is?  For everybody?  For always?  That's a BIG statement.  Can you justify?

Yea, verily.  But I don't think you'll find a one-cost-fits-all model.  When
one person's costs are lower than another and they're doing similar things,
it's often called "efficiency" or "competitiveness".  (Just as one example.)
