The ripple effect of this partnership will help existing Toshiba business partners such as the Shaw Group.
The Shaw Group develops nuclear reactors with Toshiba all over the world.
Shaw is a 20% equity partner via its investment in Toshiba's Westinghouse.
We all know the Japanese cultural and business values when it comes to long time business partners, so we can assume that Shaw has been in on this development for a long time. Look at their awesome balance sheet of cash and see that they are "prepared" for anything.
Mr. Obama has already "blessed" Shaw with Internal Revenue Service tax credits and the granting of billions of USD for developing nuclear power plants in the USA.
But to have "The Bill Gates" on your team is beyond the pale as far as upside!
