  •  GM/UAW fought efficiency. Japanese sold it. (0+ / 0-)

    GM/UAW were basically anti-American in their fight against fuel efficiency, making US dependent on Middle East oil with the cost in wars, terrorism, pollution and economic decline.

    •  That's NOT the cause of GM's problems. (1+ / 0-)

      Read this here if you want to understand the REAL problem. I added more detail and comparison with the Japanese autos and the solutions people usually proscribe as what will save American autos. I'm not saying fuel efficiency, green cars or less expensive current workers are undesirable. They'd be great in the long run for the American autos bottom line. But that's not the real problem. The real problem is supporting over a million retirees. No company in America can afford that.
