I disagree. These "smaller" car companies will achieve an economy of scale previously unattainable. Plus, they can leverage off the corporate entity -- market, R&D, etc. But, in the case of GM, instead of being folded into the greater auto-making juggernaut, they remain independent companies. Saturn, SAAB, and Cadillac enjoy this independence. They retain independent status, retain all economies of scale, but are much more easily differentiated. They retain their own personas. -- Marc Escuro mgescuronopsam.com http://home.att.net/~bryesquire "...when all hope is gone, you know sad songs say so much..."
