doomsday said:I think it would be a good idea for GM, Ford, and Chrysler (Dodge) to work together and talk about what they are producing and what they could do better. I mean, if they could pull resources from each other it would really help them out. Years ago when Chevy/Ford/and Mopar were the only things out there it was good to be in competition, now with Toyota/Honda/Nissan they need to work together to pick themselves out of the slump.
After all, the Japeneze already have a head start because they don't have to pay their workers as much as US manufactures. (Ford/GM/Dodge pays its workers $65 an hour on average, Toyota/Honda/Nissan only $45, due to all that Union stuff.)
Toyota would never do it, they would loose money on the merger. Nissan was going to merge with GM, but decided against it (and they are already friendly with ford, the Nissan Quest mini van is a Ford windstar), that leaves Honda who is pretty happy on their own.128shot said:Is that even practical in a business sense? if it is, expect Nissan, Honda, and Toyota to jump on the bandwagon and merge, becoming the biggest powerhouse in the world quite equal to the oil giants that supply our gasoline.
It would be very interesting indeed, since with that kind of capital floating around alot of European brands would be bought up and the competition betweeen the fictious 2 would be intense
