Al Gore and Finland needed bigtime $$$CASH to build $100K electric sports cars. The market should be huge (grin), but $530 Million is a lot of cash.
They found a sucker.
Our commander-in-chief, wants to fund foreign car manufacturing operations, in competition with GM (himself), not to mention the viable, free-market domestic concern, Ford.
For some reason, free-market capital would not fund it. Wonder why.
