  1. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    another Tesla segue..at the end, she makes a good point about starting in the EV market vs. moving from ICE to EV.   If you believe the story, you might double your investment.  If I had to bet, that is more likely at Tesla than VW and Mercedes.

        "by the middle of the next decade" would place that ~2025.  Your taxes at work...   EU greenlights mega subsidies for electric batteries   https://www.dw.com/en/eu-greenlights-mega-subsidies-for-electric-batteries/a-51588076 
  3. Can an employer change your role within the company?

    Germans and their contracts...christ.  I've never had and even refused contracts.  You pay me; I work.  You don't; I don't.  I like it here; I stay.  I don't; I go.  You like me; you pay me.  You don't like me; I go.  It's never been complicated...it's always been clear and to me, fair and equal.

      So did this new trade called "mechanics" who went from blacksmiths to capitalize on the new technology automobiles.

      That's way too simplistic and misleading.  
  6. Any scientists here? Need a reality check regarding jobs

      I would think that someone with your research credentials would be able to find answers to these questions by searching various job boards, linkedin, since that's where jobs are.  Likewise, you might contact US international companies and universities that meet your criteria and see if they have offices in DL.  That's how I found work and I don't even have a PhD.

      Could it be his "favoritism" was earned by the quality of his work?  Why would you want to prevent that?
  8. It sounds to me that you were offered a package of services for a flat fee.  As with a buffet, you pay one price and choose what you do and do not eat.  The consultant was willing to offer all the services you listed, but you chose to only select a few and now you want a discount for those services you did not use.  I suppose the consultant could have offered his time and charged you an hourly rate, but it appears you took the package deal.

      I assume a general "you".  The complexity of this world makes it difficult, if not impossible, to answer that question.  Raw material, assembly. distribution, POS, design.  If I buy steel "made" in China, but was made with ore from one country and scrap from another and smelted in Taiwan but shipped to the mainland by a broker who sells it on the open market to the lowest bidder who then ships it to a distributor who adds value by finishing the steel, just where was it made?  Can you tell me which hand in this scenario was sullied and which was pure and by whose standard?  If so, you're a better fruit than I am.

      I think the point is none of those things happened...and without the need of a union.   If unions are such a labor panacea, why are they in decline?

    Why A Million-Mile Battery Means Teslas Could Last A Lifetime https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&time_continue=1&v=lZtfAtHMhmE&feature=emb_logo   Irony- You keep the fuel, but replace the vehicle.

      That something "special" is cost of production.  Combustion engines and their accessories can't compare to the cost of battery power.  If auto companies can hold their prices, profits will grow substantially...that's why everyone is going towards battery power....not because of the environment.

      Employees are not puppies.   You seem to have a problem with companies.  Just what do you do for a living?  Are you in a monastery?  If not, you are subject to the world of business and must exist in a state of perpetual turmoil.

      Perhaps he meant "cash infusion" or just plain "cash".
