Basic supply and demand at work; more supply than demand = shutdown of business. So now refocus on what is thought to be the next business based on corps competency, in this case energy. Makes sense.
The corruption in the political / economic system is a separate matter. The people of Louisiana need to fight that battle or continue to live with poor education and infrastructure...but bc they are uneducated and poor, not much chance of the population 'smart' enough to make that change. By 'smart' I don't mean intelligent, I mean savvy.
