Obviously I am a layman when it comes to these matters, maybe somebody could enlighten me: How is it possible that these carmakers keep burning literally billions of dollars every year? Wouldn't it be much cheaper to just sell the operations to somebody else who could manage to squeeze a buck out of it? People are not going to buy less cars without GM/F, and they are not going to buy more with them. So who allows GM/F to just throw away this cash in a bottomless hole all the time? Isn't there better use for this money?
