 Historical Minute -- February 2014

“…Air conditioning is still far too expensive to find a wide popular market. So long as it costs at least $1,500 to install year-round air conditioning in a $10,000 to $15,000 house as opposed to around $700 for plain heating, the man who builds such a house is going to get along without the air conditioning. So long as it costs $400 or more to buy a portable cooler for one room, most people are going to trade in their old cars for new ones instead. No amount of salesmanship can sell the public something it wants only occasionally at a price it definitely does not want to pay.”

—From “Weathermakers—Carrier Corp.” Fortune, April, 1938
