to welcome An Investor of first time basically, and to be happy about in the future, new jobs, anything other than a kowtow. Policy means, or should do it at least – to take care of the basic needs of people, especially around work, Housing, safety and security. Therefore, Brandenburg's Minister of Economics Jörg Steinbach of the SPD has met exactly the job profile, as he brought the so-called Gigafactory by Tesla, according to green Heath, because, if all goes well, several thousand Jobs are linked – the Figures fluctuate more between 3,000 and 8,000.

Just so it is clear that such investments are subject to regulations. Berlin's head of government Michael Müller can be formulated in the autumn in the house of representatives aptly: "An Investor should not be able to make in our city, just what he wants – but it is the task of politics, to lead these conversations and not easy to cancel."

This went on for a short time before in the direction of the cross mountain, green Baustadtrat Florian Schmidt, who had previously rejected a several 100 million dollar investment in a Karstadt tag on the Hermannplatz. Schmidt and expropriation activist Rouzbeh Taheri – "Housing investors, such as the German, I would like to etch like to increase" – to convey repeatedly the impression, as was to be classified "Investor" is on a par with the concepts of the child molester or the environment criminal. Miller's image, however, is the guard rails, intended to steer investment in the right direction – and not just by fences and stop signs.

On Brandenburg and Tesla based this means the first reaction to The settlement announcement may not be, the project – as, unfortunately, sometimes happen from the outset because of the 300 acres of pine forest in question, which have to be cut down for the factory. You don't need to be thousands of kilometers on the road bike by Brandenburg, on the road, to know that the pine forest is anything other than a lack of goods in the country.

the task of government is to weigh up also. And since thousands of jobs are on the one hand, on the other hand, the loss of a small area of forest, the equivalent of around 400 football fields. From Brandenburg, you can use you still more, all the more so, if they can be seen thousands of Jobs disappear in the brown coal opencast mining. From the other the Land of enough – all the more so if, as compensation for the cutting down elsewhere from sub-pine forest a mixed forest.
