Tesla scales back German battery plans, won over by U.S. incentives

The sole incentive for a company or an entrepreneur to make an investment should be market dynamics. And I am not talking about the market for subsidies which seems to be the only reason why many companies such as Tesla consider certain investments. If there is no natural demand for a product, those investments should not be made as this is taxpayers’ money that everyone will have to cough up. Subsidies create winners where losers should die on the hill. And it kills those that try to work markets more honestly. Helping the weak and not the strong makes us all weaker. Let’s not be surprised when our economies tank.
