Sad to see the once great US car firms going down the pan, just like UK ones did in the 70s. The same combination of:- 1. Greedy overpaid bosses ( Muhlaly on $28m. p.a. ) 2. Stroppy Unions 3. Strong competition. The USA used to beat Europe easily in business and manufacturing. Now the Asian countries are easily beating the USA in just the same way. This is the 11th hour guys. Wake up and adapt or become a service industry based country. Real wealth creating jobs are not in the Government, Police, Fire services etc. etc. The money-go-round of service industry jobs wonât go on for very long before it becomes apparent, the economy is a house built on sand. The harsh realities of the hotch-potch Capitalist system are being painfully exposed. They ( in the 3rd world ) used to do the suffering â now its their turn to be on top. Canât blame them too much for putting the boot in where it hurts. Just listening to the pundits on business channels â they all see the slide of US and European business clearly but not one of them puts forward a creditable solution. Ho hum lets see if they can think of the obvious BEFORE itâs too lateâ¦â¦â¦â¦..
