Neoliberal state 101

The state has contracted a private company to manage a national road

1. If the profits from the toll charge do not reach a certain amount, the state has to pay the company the "loss"

2. If the road is out of order - e.g. due to a natural disaster - the company is responsible of fixing, and it has to pay a fine proportionate to the time the road was unavailable

Heavy snowfall: the state opts beforehand to block the access to the road. The 1st condition is triggered.

@dimitrisk surely all those compensation will trickle down, right? RIGHT?

@signaleleven oh, sure! Btw, you made me smile, I didn't even think of that :)
