"The Big Three have hurt themselves with overly generous union contracts...overemphasis on light trucks and sport utility vehicles ....and a lack of exciting new models. No appreciation of the yen will save the Big Three from competition against nonunion plants turning out stylish, dependable and fuel-efficient cars" That says it all right there. The Big Three churn out so many suv's and gas guzzling trucks that with gas at $2 a gallon, we are going to lean more towards buying the fuel efficient cars. I have owned both a Ford and a Honda, and hands down I preferred the Honda over the Ford. Looks like the big three is looking for a scapegoat rather than attempt to tackel the problem of low sales. International trade is good for all parties involved and its a shame that the big three are passing the buck and trying to limit trade.

I have owned both a Ford and a Honda, and hands down I preferred the Honda over the Ford. It looked better, was more gas efficient, and I had less problems with that car overall. Looks like the big three is looking for a scapegoat rather than attempt to tackle their problem of low sales. International trade is good for all parties involved and its a shame that the big three are passing the buck and trying to limit trade through political measures.

The 'legacy' costs that the three have are a result of unbridled hubris in the 1980s when they were already asking Detroit for import limitations on small Japanese trucks, at the same time they assumed their market share would go on forever and signed contracts such that even if they had that market share they would be hurting and screaming now. But Porsche has the German unions and I was stunned at how much money P. is making on sales of less than 50,000 vehicles.

I have driven or owned nearly everything and now drive a 2003 Ford Escape with 78,000 miles, not a single repair, just normal maintenance, tires, wipers etc. It is a wonderful vehicle, but now Ford has to convince everyone of that. Speaking of Honda

did you know every car in the last Indy 500 ran a HONDA engine?


Gulp.....

Speak of the devil....any ideas about the recent NYSE and TSE alliance and possible merger?

Here's something interesting from the announcement on Yahoo:

"Under the terms of the agreement, NYSE Group and the TSE will establish working groups to discuss such things as infrastructure, technology and trading issues, as well as market data products and regulation and governance of listed companies. They also will examine ways to enable companies who are listed on only one exchange to have better access to investors from the other."

Any ideas why this is happening now?
