This is how bad things are in GMNA


Recommended Posts

how does turning off voicemail save on expense?

Reduces wear on phones with people not hitting excessive buttons to check messages? :huh:

Apparently GMNA white collar workers do, because they have to write down phone messages.

I can't remember the last time I used one...many years ago...I use pens when I have to write something not on a computer or phone.

I have a couple mechanical pencils for sketching cars... (does not happen often)

and there's an old dusty #2 sitting in my desk at work, even though I use a blue

ballpoint or a black sharpie for most everything.

Ahh, yes...alas, I haven't sketched cars since college probably... something I should try again.

This is what happens when you spend several hundred million dollars to develop a global platform and then only use it on four models globally.

This is what happens when you spend lots of money to design innovatively styled A-segment cars and are caught so off guard by people actually wanting them it takes you 5 years to bring them to market.

This is what happens when you take the good stuff from other markets and "dumb" it down for American consumption.

This is what happens when you close legacy brands that sold more cars than 3 newer "boutique" brands combined.

Everybody, everywhere, is doing anything they can just to save a few pennies... even stable, solid companies companies are doing it... we haven't hit the bottom of this crisis yet and I think the expectation is for 2009 and 2010 to be really rough years...

Even though we're in a hiring freeze, my employer recently gave employees a look at their 4th quarter plan, which include more than double the advertising as last year and millions in in-store displays. Apparently out business model is something along the lines of "it takes money to make money even when people dont have money to spend."
