    Are admitting to hijacking my thread?


    Perhaps if you want to whine about republicans you go get yer own thread.




    I disagree "Gafts" are interesting and important.

    That's true.

    However, I was having a nice discussion with others. Gafts and gottcha politics don't do much for me. I prefer substance. Sue me.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

Lord Tammerlain is 100% correct on this and ptif219 has utterly failed to grasp the concept of. The immediate effets of GM and Chrysler going down would be immense and not easily recoverable from.

    That said, GM is still fracked up and Chrysler even more so. GM should spin off its North American branch and focus on where it makes money: every where else.
    Most of the supply chain would die off, but Ford and Japan's business isn't going away. This also doesn't take into account that the remains of GM and Chrysler would also go somewhere. The demand for cars is still there, and others would fill the gap.

    The supply chain is the issue


    Ford uses many of the same suppliers as GM and Chrysler. A bankrupt GM unable to buy new parts and pay for ones already delievered means those suppliers go broke. That means Ford does not get any parts to manufacture its cars for a few months

    It does not mean that they go broke. It means that they have to downsize.

    Given Ford's overhead costs it means bankruptcy
