so what ever happened to competition? isn't that what America is built on? Isn't that greed what has sent most of our jobs overseas...China, Mexico etc to make our goods so we can overpay CEO's...well, seems like they hit themselves over the head with a hammer by bashing and lobbying government to bash Chinese solar because they can't run away with outlandish profits like the other corps who steal from the world to fuel their greed...better to have gone after big oil who fights solar with all their might than China solar...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!!!
Actually, FSLR is not one of the American companies calling for tariffs on Chinese solar panels. The problem is not American competitiveness, its that its nearly impossible to compete when the Chinese govt. is flooding the Chinese panel makers with cheap cash coupled with cheap Chinese labor, with the cheap cash backstopping the companies while they eliminate the competition by dumping the panels below cost. The lead company calling for tariffs on the Chinese, Solon AG, just went BK 2 days ago.
