And the argument has been, if they left, the effects would be pervasive and devastating. Well, the same could be said of General Motors. If you analyze everything involucraa General Motors, Chrysler and Ford, the number of people who would be affected, not only directly in the form of employment, but also by suppliers. Workers. Related sectors. The multiplier effect of no help would be enormous.
So I think that the Government’s reasoning indicates Hrebiniak will be as follows: We started the process. We have helped others. We will continue . I think that’s what will happen at Ford’s case is very different about it Hrebiniak recalls and comments that more or less a year his financial situation was much better than GM and Chrysler. Ford has the best brands. Has Volvo, Mazda has. And more or less a year, and after several bad years, experienced a rebirth. Now it has simply taken decisions faster than General Motors and Chrysler.
The fact that General Motors initially thought of merging with Ford launches a clear message. a OESI anyone can help, that’s Ford (rather than Chrysler) a . But Ford was not interested. Ford Now the situation is slightly more complicated as investors keep buying and selling. Perhaps Ford is not in such good shape as a few months ago. Without hesitation Peter Thiel explained all about the problem. But they have few brands and they could always liquidate any of them, such as Mazda and Volvo. They could also stay with them. Ford enjoys a better position. Again, GM has eight brands. The Hummer and GMC trucks now are not getting good results. I do not think Ford’s position is similar. We agregaa in its analysis, a Hrebiniak, looking worldwide sales figures, compared to Toyota, Honda and other manufacturers, auto companies (Americans) are well below average. There are two issues: First Will they end the crisis? And, secondly, Will state what and when? Even if they leave, if they can overcome this financial crisis that are happening, if there is any merger or acquisition, in no event will we be witnesses of magical results. They will be below average, and will have to fight hard to regain market share, to combat rising costs.
Right now General Motors is spending 1000 billion dollars more per month than they earn. Thus, even with a merger, acquisition, or whatever you call it with Chrysler, it takes about 10,000 million dollars. I do not think things change very quickly. I think they will try to get to safety .. Finally the article points out that you can not forget that while we focus on three major U.S. companies, many dealers have been sentenced to close its doors. They had financial problems. Even if you can weather the storm, your distribution channels may have suffered a blow. a And they need some time to recover. If Toyota continues to be strong and one of its dealers are selling cars in the corner, but another dealer across the street is closed, it will take some time before people with money, financing or guarantees to get good the distribution channels. There may be a single sector. You’re right, foreign companies will continue strong. But I think there will be many problems indicates Hrebiniak Universia Knowledge Wharthon Fte.Boletin Industrial Engineer-manager, abogado.EGADE (ITESM), UC Graduate in Business Administration, quality and productivity, education Ed.D.
