Hey! Here’s a GREAT idea: Any executive of any company which has received any kind of federal support MUST purchase and drive an American-made car and donate their BMW, Mercedes, Lexus or whatever to the Salvation Army.
Since the 1950’s Japanese automakers have been concentrating on the quality of their products, having bought into the theories of MIT professor Dr. Edward Demmings.
And that the Germans had pretty much cornered the market on excellence in engineering.
All that US manufacturers have excelled in is marketing gimmicks and it has finally caught up with them.
The Germans and the Japanese (and the Koreans) have been building cars consumers want to buy. US manufacturers have been building cars that the companies want to sell.
Once again the federal government will reward bad behavior.
