Q: Could the Volt (and increasing transportation costs from Asia) help bring back Detroit and the North American manufacturing sector?
A: There will have to be a painful period of readjustment for the trade unions. You cannot have a society where everybody has job security, wonderful benefits, high salaries, and then you go to Wal-Mart and buy $19.99 DVD players.
This came out of an interview with GM's Bob Lutz at the unveiling of the new Chevy Volt.
Now, I do think its a silly debate between Chevy and Ford people. But if I really had to boil it down, I am definitely a Chevy guy. I cant wait to buy one in 3-4 years from now.
