Tourism is the number one industry here in Florida. If this works --and for now it's so far, so good --we'll have crowds around the launches again.
That means that:
(a) the hotels get booked up solid before the launches, which brings tax revenue into the county.
(b) All the little businesses along the beach also profit as they usually do when this sort of venture comes along = more tax dollars.
(c) If this happens in the Summer, those folks will want to get indoors, which means the shops & Malls will get more customers.
Maybe what you say is true. I still think that there will be tourists watching the Launches, and that's a win-win situation.
