    I feel like I am in opposite world....

    China's auto sales weakened in late 2008 as the global financial crisis hit but rebounded after Beijing launched a stimulus package with sales tax cuts, subsidies to trade in older cars and other incentives.

    Passing a cap and trade tax on companies and forcing increased MPG's....

    Interesting to note that their stimulus package was tax cuts. Works every time.
