should the government invest in successful businesses?
I have an AS level Business Studies question that is about a business that almost went under, but pulled through and is now successful. The question reads; 'Crussh received no government support during its set up phase. Should the government invest in the business now? Explain your answer.' Surely the only money the government have is from tax, and so they shouldn't invest it if there is the chance they could lose it. I'm thinking that it isn't part of their job to invest. I'm really not sure, so any help would be useful. Please explain your answers! Thank you in advance :)
