I've tried not to post anything concerning the GM situation because it seems a lot of people have positive feelings for old American companies. However, let's look at the numbers. GM market cap right now: ~ 500 Million dollars. Intel market cap ~ 90Billion, microsoft market cap ~ 180billion, Google market cap ~ 130billion. Why is the government continuing to throw 10's of billions of dollars at a company worth less than a billion dollars? Even if GM rights itself and builds it's worth back up to a few 10's of billions, that will still not justify this massive investment. Shouldn't the gov't be investing to keep the new economy, high tech companies mentioned above running well instead? I say this because thirty years ago no one would have expected each of the US big three automobiles to be in or near bankruptcy but here we are. With China, India, and other countries investing heavily in education and technology, who is to say that our high tech companies won't be next to struggle? I think the 10's of billions to bailout GM is being mostly wasted and would be better spent keeping the industries that we need for the future strong and competitive.
