All Boeing 747 max planes are grounded by the faa but only after 100s of deaths all responsible because someone wanted to make money.

    William LinWilliam LinBulan Yang lalu
  • Delta doesn’t use their own money to fix engines. They use the bail-out money provided by taxpayers every year...

    RexRexBulan Yang lalu
    • @KittyCow Also wrong, a bailout is not a backward reward. It’s not free money. Businesses are entitled to pay it back within the allotted time specified in the grant. It’s not rewarding economic struggle, it’s helping keep people employed to facilitate the recovery. The circular flow model indicates those with disposable wealth and income are more likely to spend it during an economic downturn, so supplying that disposable income to employees in the form of bailouts encourages them to spend, which circulates, financing other sectors of the economy. Your understanding of the Soviet Union is also flawed. In the USSR “businesses” didnt “choose”. They were mandated. The Soviet Union was inefficient not because of unsustainable manufacturing practices, it was inefficient because of a price ceilings which capped the quantity produced, regulated by the government, to an artificially set market equilibrium which creates a shortage. The mid allocation and artificial adjustment of the Soviet economy is what caused inefficiency, not unsustainable employment practices.

      TMKTMKBulan Yang lalu
    • @KittyCow That is a very bad analogy. A bailout occurs when a business cannot sustain itself in its current state for reasons such as lost revenue. It’s not free money like I said prior. When a company is bailed it, that means it could no longer afford to operate at current levels without losing employees, assets, etc. When bailed out, companies don’t just get free money and use what they have left to invest. They’re asking for a grant when they can no longer facilitate steady employment, meaning they cannot afford day to day costs. There is no room for this so-called “investment”. They are categorical grants specific for the purpose of financing lost revenue. The government doesn’t pay everything off, they only pay what they lost compared to the same time from the previous fiscal year, taking bailout money and misallocating it is illegal. In the case of economic risk, the fault does not fall on the company since economic downturn is not forecast as something a business can be held liable for. The argument that they failed to adjust to the future is flawed. Bailouts occur to ensure people stay employees, feeding disposable income into the circular flow model which finances recovery. Your understanding of what a bailout is and why they’re issued is fundamentally flawed.

      TMKTMKBulan Yang lalu
    • @Rex Never disputed that, straw man fallacy. From what I understood from your comment, you implied that bailouts are a net negative to society, which is wrong for the reason that bailouts are categorical grants intended to finance overhead and lost liquidity. In accordance to the circular flow model, the wages paid out from the bailout will fuel society by providing employees with disposable income. As I explained above, bailouts are not necessarily a negative on part of the government. A bailout is not free money to the company, it comes with strings attached one way or another. I never disputed prior bailout claims, what I stated is that bailout money goes towards financing future liquidity by covering lost liquidity.

      TMKTMKBulan Yang lalu
    • @TMK its the same backwards reward system that screwed over the soviet union, businesses that refuse to plan for the future and instead choose to employee vast unsustainable amounts of people to get bargaining power with politicians are just "5 year plans" with the plan interval being the consistent 5-10 years between economic recessions (edit: typo)

      KittyCowKittyCowBulan Yang lalu
    • @TMK its like paying for all of someones living expenses then them getting to spend 100% of their income investing, sure youre not buying them investments but youre getting rid of their expenses that directly frees up money they should be spending. Government spending in times of crisis is necessary and not inharently bad, but we shouldnt do this backwards corporate welfare because it socializes all the risk of business. And like another commenter mentioned, this is FAR from the first time airlines have been bailed out.
