The idea is similar to the more widespread community supported agriculture programs where customers get a share of seasonal produce.

A Fresh Look at GT Advanced Technologies
In light of GT Advanced Technologies' (NAS: GTAT) recent crash on the stock market, I decided it was time to take a step back and re-evaluate the company. Usually a stock would never enter a point where 75% of its market cap is held in cash, the stock trades at a P/E ratio under 3 and has a backlog nearly four times the size of its business. But in the crazy world of solar, this is what GT Advanced Technologies investors are left with.

OPINION
*******************************************************************

The Subprime Student Loan Bubble
The feds paid for one heckuva a lot of US education...subsidizing students and colleges...with trillions of dollars. They pay for GIs to go to school. They give grants to the schools themselves. And they hand our hundreds of billions in loans, at low teaser rates (just like sub-prime!) to students...often to students who are unqualified and unlikely to get much out of it.
