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...

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
