HOW THE WEST WAS LOST? THE DECLINE OF THE WEST? [Copy link] 中文

Today marks the special day of decline of the West.

1. 1,100 GM dealerships received either phone calls or FedEx couriers letters stating not renewing their contract for Oct, 2010 resulted in millions and millions of job loss. This was preceded by Chrysler yesterday announcement of closing 790 dealerships.

2. Trade war is dooming with BUY AMERICA and United States is tearing other western countries apart by buying America.

3. The closing of  GM truck plant in Canada and moved to Mexico and back to United States after 44 years in Ontario signals
a major shift in GM N.America and global operations.

4. The issue is countries still spying on its citizens, employees and fighting among each others over wages, hours and rules and regulation and some minor stupid things. i.e. CAW Canadian Auto Union fights to death against GM Canada and what goods is that.

5. Talking about human rights, 24 hours monitor and surveillance against employees is useless when the national goal is
about productivity. When the West can not even make a pair of shoes, or shirts or textile-related products, I wonder how long
Europe and N. America can last.

6. Abuse of power, corruption by big companies would only leads to its demise !

Today is a sad day across N. America and I would not imagine GM and Chrysler can come back. Millions of jobs will be lost.

The sad part is all these people claims to be Managers, V.P., senior V.P.  CEO and President still don't understand national interests but hold
on to their power and fight against the workers and the result can be seen : the demise of GM General Motors.

Never forget the real competitor is next door: Japan !

Chrystler and GM were already pretty weak as they failed to adapt to the market of economical and environmentaly friendly cars.
Crisis are pitiless with the weaks.
But Fedex is getting ok ;)

I doubt they will either. The really sad thing, is that GM for one could be healthy in FIVE MINUTES. Last month GM sold 170,000 cars in the US and lost something like $1.5 billion on those operations. They literally lost almost $10,000 for every car they sold in the US. Last month GM sold 150,000 cars in China and made money on every one of them. If GM simply jettisoned its US operations and renamed itself Buick China, it would instantly become one of the most profitable car companies on the planet with the most desirable product positioning in the most desirable car market in the world. But that won't happen. Instead the restructured GM will be run as a welfare font for UAW workers. GM will neglect and underinvest in its Chinese factories and it's market position in China will slowly erode into dust. Within a few decades the Chinese consumer's love for Buick will be but a memory. Too bad for GM. Chinese consumers will find something else to buy.

War

There is a military build up in Australia.Presumably this reflects similar buildups in Amerika and Europe.
The West needs a war to get it out of the current depresion.The question is who will it demonise and
attack this time ? How big will it be ? Will they use nuclear weapons ?

petera, if so, China should plan to let Ghod take the course and allow a serious flu pandemic. The Americans and Australians are far less immune to flu than EuroAsians.

When GM goes, so goes America !

When GM goes, so goes America !

The America Main Street will be full of empty lots with rusty GM, Chrysler signs, broken windows and haven for crimes.

Millions will be out of work in less than 12 months from salesmans, mechanics, Managers, car washers, truck drivers, and
all the supplier chains.

But they are still killing each others, yes CAW is fighting against GM Management and they literally KILL each others for what.

America is gone, North America is gone. The largest trade partner Canada will have tens of thousands jobs lost.

But they are still killing each others for more wages, more pensions, more benefits.

That's how the West is lost !

Management designs poor cars, poor management techniques and the workers never accept the management in any companies in the West including any courier companies i.e. FedEx.

It is a sad day when millions jobs are gone forever !
