It’s not internalized. So, as we’re thinking about 21st century institutions with AI that deal with chronic, diffuse, long-term, cumulative, and generally invisible piece by piece kind of death by a thousand cuts type harms that you literally don’t even be able to measure on your own even, or like smelling or tasting or touching, but are there as AI threatens to create more externalities in many more quadrants, we need institutions that also are forecasting harms in that area.
