An Alternative to Ethanol

October 21, 2010

In case you're looking for an alternative to ethanol, points out that you could purchase a Chevy Volt.  However, they don't seem completely sold on it: "So it's not an all-electric car, but rather a pricey $41,000 hybrid that requires a taxpayer-funded $7,500 subsidy to get car shoppers to look at it."

As usual, anything the government backs automatically becomes a dead horse.

This has nothing to do with advertising and everything to do with the Federal government showing that once again it cannot, and should not, pick winners in terms of industrial policy. Ethanol has been hanging on for more than 30 years and still cannot exist without taxpayer subsidies. Looks as if the Volt will be less than successful as well. Hope that clears things up.

Do you have a point? Other than garnering hits to drive advertising, of course.
