Reason | China Is Winning the Race to Lose Billions on Solar Power

America’s failed government-subsidized ventures into solar panel manufacturing have been blamed on that massive Chinese industrial juggernaut, flooding the market with cheaper goods and making it impossible for us to compete. (And not because of poor public investment decisions and lack of accountability due to crony capitalism, no sir!)

Goodness. That’s 35 Solyndras!
