Maybe GM sells more cars in china than here because....well americans dont want to buy GM. Its not like they hate america and refuse to supply cars here.
And about the jobs....it costs GM, ford, etc more to pay for employees health care benefits than the steel that goes into their cars. That is not a successful business model. The workers unionized, and drove the companies out of the US. There was no way to cost effectively keep the jobs in the US.
The only way to keep jobs in the US is to increase the price of the vehicles they make to offset the higher costs of production.
BUT WAIT...americans didnt want their cars when they were cheap, why in the hell would they when they are more expensive?
People piss and moan about about america going to shit...but are you willing to pay the price to keep us on top? Everybody on this forum rides a JAPANESE bike. (yup that helps foreign economies). Im sure 99% of you shop at walmart. guess how they keep those prices so low....CHINA
we are htting a point where everybody in the country expects such a high standard of living that we cant sustain it anymore. we used to bully south american countries and china for their resources and their cheap goods and labor. now, because of us helping industrialize them, they are rising up on their own. but eventually, they will be in the same problem we will. too many fucking people.
and honestly....its so funny that this whole video is like OMG gm is helping china. they love communism. what a fucking joke. what GM is doing IS capitalism AT WORK. They are worried about making a profit and are going where that is most capable. which is not the US.
all the dumbass tea partiers and republicans said the bailout would make GM a government entity and that it was destroying capitalism. well guess what! if that was actually the case, they wouldnt have been allowed to leave!
you people want your cake and to eat it to.
and im not gonna reread this before i post. its probably retarded and makes no sense. but im not good with getting my thoughts out

this whole life's a hallucination.
