After reading another thread I felt compelled to ask this question. If you are going to start a business which is the better business model... I realize those of you with no business experience or economics experience will be able to answer but that's fine. Scenario #1 - You start a business and realize if you make bad decision you may go out of business. Scenario #2 - You start a business and realize if you make bad decision the government is going to cover your losses. What do you think is going to happen in each scenario?
