Don't you decide *who* to ask for advice rather than whether the advice is
good? At the end of the day all you get some idea of is if you trust that
person, they have a good reputation etc. Eventually you sometimes have to
accept some people do know more than *you* in some areas of life.

Actually a temporary subsidy for new technology can reduce costs by creating
demand, (IE: "creating a market").  The larger demand should lead to
manufacturing and distribution efficiencies and competation that can greatly
reduce unit costs.

1) The initial cost has not been reduced; it has merely been shifted
from one demographic to another.

2) Governments are not instituted to 'create markets' or to control
economies of scale.
