Re: VW Scandal: 59 Early Deaths Expected In US
@tzubair, yeah, we're talking about putting a dollar value on human life here, so it's impossibly complex to begin with. One could say that the open-ended nature leaves VW open to that much more penalization than if they, say, caused a single big traffic accident. It certainly seems like the researchers did their legwork and then some in saying 'here's how this value tallies up, IF we assume this, this, and this, and here's how it measures up to existing precidents, so this is more likely'. No doubt this incident will be scrutinized as a case study for years to come. The fallout is justifiably catastrophic.
