I read that report. Its well written. But what does Mr. McCormack want? That the American road-going citizenry be denied access to Toyotas and Hondas and European Smart Cars, to maintain existing Detroit-area autoworker communities in perpetuity? That automakers be compelled by force of law to make unprofitable high-tech small cars in UAW-wage/benefit factories? As I see it, the most important obligation of the auto industry to society is their job to us - building decent cars for us to buy and drive. Not to provide lifelong job security or to maintain factory towns in perpetuity.
