I found a great artcile by Jack and Suzy Welch today in Business Week. I like the approach it takes. It may not be the right solution overall but it doesn't involve just giving them money. It requires them to fight through bankruptcy and emerge a better more competitive merged company. As the US moves forward they are going to have to realize that the global landscape is requiring change and competition in new ways. The auto industry is finally having to face this fact. This is a good article and worth the read.
