All corporations are nothing more than
an expression of their respective management's
decisions and will.
This is why you should really speak of management
as much as the corporation and why the salaries
that many consider too high are in fact quite
paltry when considered in the context of the
effect on profits that their decisions can have.
In other words, if Juergen Schremp can literally
add or delete billions from the profits of his
company he is easily worth 15 million annually -
which is not that much in today's dollars anyway.
Bob Lutz, the new guy at GM, should probably
be listened to. The only thing that I have noticed
from GM lately is the 16, and Lutz had to make
compromises to the existing designers who like
that "ugly edge" design school. They should let
Lutz have more power.
Personally the cars I like are Mercedes,
especially AMG and the Maybach. For an insight
why, Forbes just did a quick comparison of the E55
and 3 other competitive German makes. There
is currently nothing from GM that competes
with the E55. Lutz and his coworkers could
change that and I hope they do. Competition
