I would say as always adaption and market shift for what a new consumer expectations will be or at least anticipated to profit from?

I like to think about stuff and making money for me is usually secondary. To me the spirit of what I would like to build to help the world live better and other people have a purpose.

I think of new actual practical emissions devices that simplify a process goal and increase actual output or range.

I want all three.....isn't that what innovation is?

Indeed it is.. Thinking about new ways that improve are innovative ideas. I was not making any statement about what was posted in that article. I just thought all should be seeing what some see on the horizon. Standardization usually comes with the loss of jobs. Automation requires re-training for those in jobs lost. Job losses are inevitable. Progress always changes jobs and new skills have to be acquired to keep up with the innovations.

I am seriously thinking about doing some bargain hunting now.
For example a stock that everyone loves to hate that is paying 8% dividends at its current price.

50 basis points and the fear is still real.
Yeah, well, unlike last time, no amount of monetary policy, fiscal stimulus, or outright lies about the value of assets can fix the stuff that's in the process of breaking.
