Reminds me of the following passage in the Commodore-64 Wikipedia page:

In January 1983, Commodore offered a $100 rebate in the United States on the purchase of a C64 to anyone trading in another video game console or computer.[27] To take advantage of this rebate, some mail-order dealers and retailers offered a Timex Sinclair 1000 for as little as $10 with purchase of a C64, so the consumer could send the TS1000 to Commodore, collect the rebate, and pocket the difference; Timex Corporation departed the computer market within a year.

You're saying that corporations can't profit from building mega projects, infrastructure, dams, reservoirs, pipelines, desalinization plants, etc. on the pubilc dime? You'd think that the corporations that purportedly control all government decisions would be order them to open the floodgates of public money into these projects.
