We'll write into any agreement to free them that we can depreciate the existing robots at ten percent per year. We'll get their value back in tax write-offs.
We want things to go smoothly and happily. Happy colonists plan for the future, build, spend more, and take out loans. We have to think long term.
I want my grandkids to be taking money from their grandkids.
Sometimes I can't tell if you're more or less evil than other C.F.O.'s I know.
