No point in building something to scale if you don't have VCs breathing down your neck!

Best likely case: it slowly becomes popular and you can plan to re-engineer it

Worst likely case: you have a few users and it never grows but whatever, at least you didn't waste energy engineering it to scale

poverty->crime
Try also:
poverty->depression-> -production
healthy people-> +production
