We need to get back on track here. Squabbles just clear the room and then there's no more topic, so shake hands and please challenge ideas only, not people. We may have to edit or delete some things, we'll see.
Thank you for catching up to your usual high standards.
Reminds me of the old joke: "Sure I lose money on every item, but I make it up in volume!"
It's a dubious process all the way 'round. While Nevada could argue that the 1.3 BIL in incentives it gives away are good for Nevada in the long run, (that may be) there's no reason to suggest that this is good for the USA as a whole. It's not "job creation", it's job relocation.
And another thing----I wish people would stop calling Tesla "cutting edge". It's not. It's building cars just the way everyone else does, using a technology that is basically nothing new--just improved, and using the same supply chain as GM or Toyota.
I'd really like to see business separated from the idea of it being some kind of religious quest. It's business, and Musk is very good at playing the game---and really, the game favors the big players.
So IMO it's a game changer but only in the change in which type of poker you're playing.
I worked for a whole year up there. Yeah, it IS hard to believe---maybe it gets a summer tourist crowd and of course we got lots of climbers going up to Denali. But a Tesla in that climate? Geesh.
It's probably time to break up the oil companies like Teddy Roosevelt did with sugar and shipping.
