It's not hard sci-fi though Dylan, there's a good amount of fantasy in the vibe of that movie too, so details like that probably aren't any more than surface deep. Besides, by 2157 or wheneverthefuck it is you're looking at mega-inflation so when Giovani Ribisi says it's $5,000,000 for a few grams that's probably only $2,800 in today's money.

I would've thought out of all the below average things to hate about Avatar the economics of the future would've been down the list a way.
