http://www.betterplace.com/our-bold-plan/how-it-works/ No one is going to sell cars without credit to buy a $20,000 to $70,000 vehicle..... What if.... One took the difference in monthly cash flow between the price of buying gas versus charging a vehicle ....and used it to buy GM, F, Chrysler...and the Euro, Asian makers ? What if there was no down payment requirement ? Just the difference in buying gasoline and charging batteries paid month to month ? Would this not leapfrog the US to its energy independence and pollution concerns.....while providing for transportation needs ? And allow banks the time to rebuild ?
