JAFO: <<<IOW, Adrian, OP essentially suggests as long as it is legal it is moral (even if based on other posts from him you might have thought otherwise, including with respect to "Natural Law").>>>

"There's nothing stolen or misappropriated."

Your answer begs the question.

"Indeed, the SBA issued an Interim Final Rule on April 2, 2020 that requires PPP applicants to certify that “[t]he funds will be used to retain workers and maintain payroll or make mortgage interest payments, lease payments, and utility payments.” And that requirement comes with a warning: knowingly using the funds for unauthorized purposes may lead to charges of fraud. In fact, there are a host of potential federal crimes that could apply for misusing funds or making false statements about the intended use of the funds."

Capital improvements not being an authorized use.

Yes, I know that money is fungible, but would the loans have better if used by someone who missed payroll and whose request for PPP funds was denied because the limited PPP funds were previously disbursed to others who, in fact, ultimately did not really the funds to meet payroll and other authorized uses?
