Been reading several articles today about the state of GM and the other American auto companies. Most are predicting the demise of GM sometime next year. Even if the govt. loans money to them, the auto industry as we know it, will change drastically. Even though shares of stock are trading very low, they don't recommend people buy. The stock could go to zero even if the govt. decides on helping because it would only allow them to keep certain aspects of the company going and it wouldn't relate to making cars. People that I follow who study and research the economy are mostly saying we have not seen the worst yet. I do know one thing. If this country cannot support and maintain our auto industry, it's over for this country. Things are broken due to many factors and it's going to come back and bite us in the butt.
