End of the Road, Mean Streets

old-cars

Two interesting items in this month’s Harper’s Magazine:

End of the Road, a piece about how the decline of the Big Three is linked to declining blue-collar wages and job security, and

These Mean Streets, photos of “scenes from the abandoned city”

Neither is available online unless you are a subscriber, so you’ll have do it the old fashioned way and to pick up a magazine if you want to look at these.

It’s hard to believe

But could the once-mighty behemoth General Motors really be heading for bankruptcy?

It seems more and more likely every day.

GM’s new executive has already said it, and now its been stated in an offical regulatory filing to the Treasury, the Times reports.

What would this mean for plants, employees, and retirees?
