At first, it pissed me off...all these jobs going to China, all this money going to China, etc...
But, isn't this just a working example of free-markets? If the Chinese have the money, the marketplace...shouldn't any successful corporation want to do business there? I mean, with union labor costs and health insurance costs, just a decent pickup truck is now stickering at $50k +!!! Ford, GM and Chrysler are all building better vehicles than they have in the past, however they are still MILES behind the rest of the planet! Most anything from Europe is far superior to anything built in North America. I have an Avalanche; it gets awful economy...nice ride, very quiet and comfortable...but is drinks terribly with that gas V8...why not a small 4 cyl diesel? It would pull the V8 backwards down the road and still get me 30+mpgs!!
I guess my argument here is that we all are screaming for free-markets...yet when GM impliments it, we get mad because Amerika is no longer the target audience as the money just isn't here. Yes, I understand that it's the same villains who killed the money...
Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.
