    Spamming really doesn't help your cause. Do you have something to say about the poll or are you going to continue attacking threads with your mindless anti-EU drivel?

    Anyway, autos are in trouble. Not the whole industry, obviously, but the Consumer Reports annual car issue just came out, and GM and Chrysler were next-to-last and last in overall quality. Ford can fight its way out of trouble, but the other two of the Big Three are going to end up merging or collapsing as Toyota and friends keep on pumping out efficiency and reliability.

    MZ asked what would fail next.
    I posted a story that hints that the EU is headed down that path.
    My doing so is no more anti-EU than all of MZ's inanity is anti-US.

    Banking and finance up until now. The car industry has partly also been bailed out in the US and Japan, and is now receiving support in Europe as well.

    A downward spiral where industries collapse around each other would be really bad, and the government bailing them out is impossible, because the governments would also be sucked down the drain eventually.

    How long for example can the electronics industry deal with falling demand and sales? How long then after they start collapsing can the software industry keep it going?

    Hasn't the demand really been a bubble for mostly all industries? Because of the loaning bubble and the incredible debts people have taken on to keep up consumption, How ill industries deal with a lowered natural demand? It can take perhaps 50 years to get back to the same demand we were at, without the bubble in loans. Dont know, but I see a bad spiral, and I dont like it.
