    GM is relying on a lot of less than perfect loans to sustain its sales. Am I the only one that remembers what happened the last time the government encouraged people who can't afford something to buy anyway?

    GM might have survived if it went to bankruptcy and reorganized without intervention from the federal government that mandated the production of stupid products like the Volt that nobody wanted. Today the taxpayers need to recoup their investment of GM stock for around $60 per share but it is around $20 per share. Who do we see about that?

    That is a very interesting, and surprising, story. Thank you very much for that.

    But what would happen if GM introduced a new 2013 model car called the 'Quantum' with rear passanger wind bags?

    It would probably be as big a success as the Volt.
