GM To Take The Summer Off

CAR GO BOOMGuess what, no one wants to buy your busted-ass cars! "General Motors Corp. is planning to temporarily close most of its U.S. factories for up to nine weeks this summer." So here is the deal. Companies like GM are almost of no interest to us snooty folks who live in places like New York. Except: they have to be, because the repercussions-not only for the enormous amount of employees for the company but also for their suppliers and their vendors and then their overseas employees-are enormous. This is why we have to pay attention to these boring dull things: because when a couple of cities get burned down this summer, you will totally want to be prepared for that.

As someone currently living across the river from Detroit, I appreciate the head's up. I've penciled "stockpile weapons & maybe foodstuffs" into my calendar for two weeks from today.

The car industry is like an ecosystem…that puts out a product that destroys the actual ecosystem.

If they "temporarily" stop operations theyre totally never going to start them up again.
