well if the loan is repaid with interest.. tax payers win, the company wins, the government wins, employees win etc.

sometimes supporting domestic industry is a strategic play, that does pay off for all parties involved.

The problem is sussing out viable companies that need a bit of help, from parasites that exist solely to bilk the government out of money.

I'd wager that businesses would be better off as owner-operator type enterprises, where the people who built the business, actually manage it.

Rather than hiring mercenary-like managers from business school who have the habit of taking the golden parachute option after sabotaging the business in exchange for short term profits. That never happens, amiright?

After all, commerce didn't even occur until the Harvard Business School opened its doors, right?
