I have a long term GM fix. Make cars that people want to buy and not the crap you have been putting out.
A wonderful free market statement. Totally agree. Not just for GM, but all companies.
Now, think Solyndra

at this point it is too early to know what direction these companies will head, because they are in some respects at the mercy of the global economies.

Fwiw, with the exception of Honda and 1 or 2 others, all the car companies are having some issues.

thanks National Review, what would we do without William Buckley, his arrogant accent and his unending defense of the privileged?
We would be stuck with Ariana Huffington's arrogant "the government knows what is best for you as long as its run by democrats".

1500 cars isn't much in the scheme of things. 3x that number wouldn't be much.
That's just the Volt. Think across all government purchases. I'm sure the government balances purchases between American companies right?

Fwiw, I would much rather the government be pushing hybrid technology in this way than by granting research funds or tax breaks to these companies.

GM bumped to investment grade
By Drew Johnson Friday, Sep 14th, 2012 @ 2:42 pm
General Motors' credit rating is officially investment grade north of the border. Toronto-based DBRS upgraded the Detroit automaker's credit rating to investment grade on Friday, becoming the first agency to do so.
The agency boosted GM's rating from BB (high) to BBB (low) as the result of the automaker's “sound business profile” with “impressive geographic diversification,” according to the Detroit Free Press
While positive news for GM, the automaker is still waiting for similar bumps from U.S.-based agencies Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch. However, both Moody's and Fitch have GM just one notch below investment grade.
The bump to investment grade has been a major initiative for company CEO Dan Akerson and would likely benefit taxpayers. Higher ratings typically draw more investors, which could nudge GM's stock closer to the $53 per share market needed for the government to breakeven on its bailout of the Detroit automaker.
