Response to Warren Stupidity (Reply #4)

7. What's a "guarantee" from a thief worth?

Quote from article:
"What the Bolivian government guaranteed is that it will compensate the firm for the costs invested in the electrical grid," De Guindos said on the sidelines of a finance meeting in Brussels.

Costs invested in the electrical grid? What's covered by this?
The cables?
The administrative set-up and the control system?
Installations, real estate, machines, devices, tools, spare-parts?
The costs, brain-power and experience that got the whole system running?




I can't believe the comments I'm reading here.
It's apparently okay to steal your laptop, as long as I compensate you for the cost of the electronics.
