So how has increased amount of factual information thwarted subsidies of corn based ethanol? Despite the large volume of knowledge that corn based subsidized ethanol is the worst possible solution to fight climate change, it is going full speed ahead thanks to lobbying by the corn producing states and nobody is doing anything at the grass roots to stop it. This, despite the inevitable destruction of recent model cars when the EPA demands an increase in (corn based) ethanol percentage in gasoline.
In the manufacturing world, that's what. Since the "Great Recession" started, manufacturing jobs never got close to back to what it used to be. So that begs the question, in what sector are these jobs created, since it could not possibly be in manufacturing?
Isn't this another form of payola? Isn't the principal the same, where a company influences people promoting a product with money? I don't see the difference between a 1950's DJ pushing a song after getting paid by the record company while the listener doesn't know it's being promoted and a 2016 overenthusiastic Internet reviewer getting paid by the company making the product while the reader doesn't know it's being promoted. Same marketing mechanism, same ethical problem, same net result.
Of course, you know paying online reviewers will never be made illegal because politicians are now doing this in droves!
