What's your point? Their business plan does not rest on government grants like your company's appears to.
You are mistaken if you think my company income rests on government loans. People still have to pay substantially to build their energy efficient/self sustainable homes. I dont think you realise how much research and development that takes place in order to design and make a sustainable house. This is where it is helpful to have government support, since the government doesnt have their own R&D. Therefore, they pay us and in return, we share our R&D.
This is where we differ from banks receiving grants. We are providing something very useful, very high-tech that will only benefit the future.
And in now way were the bailouts at the expense of our future generation. Without the bailouts half the people in America would have gone bankrupt because their life savings suddenly vanished. The bailouts are the only good part of government spending in the past couple years.
You tell me how good those bail-outs look on the mounting debt that will have to eventually be paid off either now or in the future by the next generation of working young americans.
I dont think you realise how we got into this position in the first place. The banks got too excessive, loaning out at no down payments. How do we reward them for their "brilliant business plan"?. Yes, by saving their bacon and taking on the bad debt that NO COMPANY IN THE WORLD will take.
Your last point of how the bailouts are the only good part of government spending is just effing rediculous. im not going to waste my time replying to such a stupid notion.
