So, what will happen if you use gets or has?
Well, if you use gets, it sounds like he’s not really doing anything. The money is just coming in by itself. He gets, gets, gets money, money, money. Whereas has.

That’s right. You weigh the good and the bad, and then that’s how you come to the decision. There is that process making it.
