Why would you Capitolize the profits of a company and socialize thier debt. If they turned a profit a company would not share it amongst the people of the country they're in. So why then should the country have to socialize thier debts amongst the citizen taxpayers of that country this is universal in all capitalist countries america is making the same mistakes here. People will make new companies different than the Fords and GM's we have today why not let them die and see what happens?

It's no more absurd than the American automaker's bailout plea - this is a huge industry in Taiwan.

What part of "prices have already dropped close to cost" was misleading? How much further should they drop prices?

i highly doubt ram prices are close to cost of manufacture in taiwan, where they pay their workers a pitiful salary, and get the mats cheaper and cheaper. again this is hypocritical, people want a free market, and when they start losing they go crying wanting a bail out.

 

my point being, you win some and you lose some, and just because profits are down shouldnt mean you go crying just because you arent makeing as much as you used too. thats like saying "i was making 8billion last year....why cant i be makeing 8billion again....GIVE ME 8 BILLION"

 Didnt they hear?  It's all the rage now.  Government steps in and bails out big biz...  We started a trend that has expanded over the pond.  Get on the badwagon and join the parade.

RAM costs next to nothing these days. I'm not suprised if they're selling near or at cost. If you start a business, you wouldn't sell something you make for 6 dollars for 5, and hope it drives demand. It might, but you'll be broke by then.
