The Harvard MBAs in the auto executive suites wouldn't know a good car if they got run over by one. And ultimately it's the cars which are going to save GM and Chrysler. This is a good news story, and I urge you to go read it.
I think GM and Chrysler need to GET BUSY building light rail, high speed trains, alternative energy generators and storage...there is so much that this idle trained, skilled work force and manufacturing space could be used for! If WE own these corporations now, and we know what is needed NOW and into the future, LET'S GEAR UP AND GET BUSY.
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
