The proverb is often used in the negative. When someone is warning other people don't throw good money after bad. All right. Let's, let's look at the meanings here. The proverb is basically warning someone not to try to recoup... recoup means to get back your losses by spending more money on the same thing. Now there could be some exceptions. Sometimes it could just be a temporary drop in the price of something. Actually that's what ends up happening. This is this is the mistake a lot of people make. They think it's just a temporary drop and they think hey maybe it's a good buying opportunity. So they put a lot more and they were not right . It just continued to go down and down and down So this is trying to warn you not to do that. So try to recoup more money on the same thing. It can also mean to waste additional money after wasting money at least once before. So we say you're throwing good money after bad. All right. So let's look at the first example here. Jack tried to recoup his losses on that stock by doubling down. Now remember if you double down like the stock goes down a lot and you I lost a lot of money. I got to make up that money and then you think well it's probably going to go back up or at least go back up to the price I've bought it at and then you think you can make money by buying more now You still.. Usually this person still has faith in that stock, but if you're wrong you're making even a bigger mistake. You already lost money but you can lose even more . So but in the end he only ended up throwing good money after bad because that stock continued to decline further. It kept going down and down and down. So this is what people are warning you about trying , not to do, You might be better off to just take the loss on that one, And if you think another stock is more of a sure bet put the same money into that. Maybe, maybe your chance of gaining back more money will be better that way. All right. Let's look at number two. Even though most solar and wind companies end up going bankrupt. Yeah. Yery few of them make money and they usually only last for a few years, Most of them I don't want to say every one but most of them end up losing money and going bankrupt and going out. Many governments still throw good money after bad and continue to invest in them, So even though they're not proven to make money, they're actually kind of proven to lose money and lose a lot and sometimes government subsidized them as well. It's trying to help the industry to go or to grow, get better but they you know, as of yet there's... they're very, very few are actually profitable. So in this sense, we might say that they're throwing good money after bad. At least if they want to get money back. All right. Number three. John tried to save his record store after the Internet downloading became popular, but he ended up throwing good money after bad because the trend was for people to get their music from the Internet and most record stores eventually went bankrupt. So here maybe for personal reasons he loved his store. If you want to save it but you know when you could kind of see the way the trend is going and the chances of you surviving is very little and trying to put more money into it it's probably not a good idea. Maybe it's better to go in a different direction Open a different business or something because most of those record stores were not survivable after that. Even some of the big-name record stores ended up going bankrupt. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
