here's a list of counties around the world that explains how they deal with subsidies for e-vehicles. whats's your opinion? http://www.myvan.com/2011/02/25/electric-vehicle-subsidies-around-the-world/
I disagree. Many times there are simply BARRIERS that have been erected by existing industries through political means (or the context of the situation itself) to remove and/or obstruct the introduction or development of COMPETING TECHNOLOGIES.Anytime a subsidy is needed the product is not efficient.
Or it is a large industry like the oil companies that are not making enough profit.
All their 700 ' yachts are due to be completed for " bussiness trips " with congress people.
They are always bad mouthing everybody ( American Petroleum Institute ) & crying poor.
Great leaders of industry. Ask them.
Can you please list the specific ways and methods in which dat ebil gubmint is "getting in the way" of electric vehicle development? Or how lawyers are impacting that development? Please be specific, and provide some verifiable information to back up your claims. Thankswhat ^^^^^ said.
subsidies are a nice way of saying theft.
good ideas will find their way to the market, assuming the regulatory/legal parasites allow it.
you want to see real advancement in the areas of EVs or other things, get these roadblocks, particularly the overzealous lawyers, out of the way.
gubmint has proven pretty damn well, that it hasn't a clue, so why do we still make believe that it does by allowing it to subsidize things with money it is stealing from our grandkids?
