Wait, I'm confused. Short term shareholder driven? I hold shares in a couple of mutual funds and my 401K, and my wife has held stock in a high tech firm for 15 years. Neither of us have had any say in the companies' policies. We'd love to convince the C-suite to think in the long term. Not going to happen. They think 3 years, plunder the company, get the parachute, bail, and leave us with a hollow shell.

@KB3001 Is there a visitor center and what are the attractions? Do you get to see a car being made?

I recommend to anyone a visit to VW's HQ in Wolfsburg to see the organisation and speak to the managers. Employee co-determination and strong collaboration between the company, the education/vocational sector and Government are key ingredients behind VW's success. Compare and contrast with the short-term shareholder-rather than-stakeholder-driven system in other countries and you quickly realise where we are going wrong...
