Wouldn't this all be solved with a sensible, working trade policy? I know nobody likes tariffs, but we need to make domestically produced products competitive. (After making a quality product, that is.) We can pay for it now, or pay for it later with bailouts on credit.
Or, is it just too late?
Actually, nevermind. The big 3 can't seem to make a good car. If extinction can't motivate them, nothing will. Tariffs would just give them incentive to maintain the status quo. We can't legislate desirablility beyond 35 MPG, and I don't think we want to if we could. Tariffs might have saved Curtis Mathis, but not these guys.
