Let me cut right through your nonsensical pro-government fearmongering bullshit.
Standard Oil was broken into pieces by the violent government that destroyed private property rights right there and then on the very same premise, that company was 'dumping' so that later it could 'jack up' prices, yet the company spent about half a century lowering prices while the owners (including Rockefeller) became insanely wealthy selling to an ever increasing consumer base at ever falling prices.
When was the last time you have heard of a 50 year stretch when prices were going DOWN for energy and not up? Standard Oil was it, an economy of scale using that exact business model, destroyed by the powerful government that destroyed individual freedoms.
I would say that was one of the the defining moments in history, when the people running businesses realised just how dangerous it is to allow the mob to set the tone, the rules (if anybody didn't get the hint then, they surely got it by the time of 'great society', which was clearly not great from point of view of individual freedoms).
So the guy wants to build up productivity, energy production, water desalination, entice thousands more people to come to the island, to settle their permanently; he wants to extend and build up the tourism and agriculture industries, yet all he is doing that for is not to increase his own productivity and to sell into more markets than ever at LOWER prices but only so that later he could 'jack up prices' on WATER on his island?
You are as deluded as you are stupid.
Ellison wants to build up his productivity, bring all costs to the lowest points he possibly can so that he can sell to the biggest audience there possibly is.
Everybody BUT governments want lower prices, including manufacturers and investors, I am sure you can never actually understand that fine point, and I don't have 100 more years to explain it to you.
