A Good Start

GM is trying to come out of bankruptcy and build a new culture. One great quote from that link, which is part of the issue in many US corporations (maybe worldwide), they're letting 35% of executives go. That's a good start as they need to get leaner to build a better company.

I think the US needs a strong auto industry, but I think they still haven't learned. Ford seems to be the only company that's done well to try and reinvent itself, struggling in the shadow of GM as they sold many SUVs and other inefficient, but profitable, vehicles. Instead Ford has a nice new lineup, and as I see their new cars, I think I'd really consider a Ford vehicle in the future.
