Secondly, the entrepreneurs on The Shark Tank invest their own money while the politicians and bureaucrats on The Guppy Tank spend yours. If they don't invest it wisely, the entrepreneurs go bankrupt, they go bankrupt. Politicians and bureaucrats simply come back to you for more or print it. It's easy to imagine which group of panelists are more cautious.
Thirdly, the entrepreneurs make their decisions based on years of success in the market place. Indeed, the contestants on The Shark Tank seem to beg for the panelists to share their knowledge and experience just as fervently as they beg for financial assistance. Few if any of the politicians or bureaucrats have ever built or maintained any sort of successful business. Indeed, their track record is poor. Think Solyndra.
By now you can guess my answer: I'd rather swim with the sharks. Wouldn't you? That's why, when elected, I intend on helping to shut down The Guppy Tank. Not only has it been unsuccessful, but also has been sucking the capital out of the financial markets, money that should be supporting potentially successful entrepreneurs.
