Pulling the plug
Here's my two cents on the GM/Chrysler bailout idea. The auto industry was in trouble long before the late unpleasantness. This is really part of a long term market cycle, not a one time blip. To return companies to profitability in a saturated market, a producer has to exit. Pass the bailout, and force the exit of a car company. Short term help and available market share for the remaining producers.
