Psychology of previous investment
The psychology of previous investment is a term coined by James Howard Kunstler for the sunk costs of the modern urban/suburban lifestyle. It is the reluctance to abandon technologies and standards of urban infrastructure into which humans have already made substantial investments, and is seen as a major contributor to modern energy crises.
