Government Motors? :: Video

6/4/2009 --

Political pressure is sure to come with the financial aid package at GM, says professor Martin Zimmerman.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — As the government assumes a majority stake in General Motors, a host of unprecedented issues now looms on the horizon. Professor Martin Zimmerman warns about a new GM in which politicians, advocating on behalf of constituents, may well interfere with the automakerís business decisions about purchasing, production, and outsourcing. As the U.S. government enters the car business, says Zimmerman, its top priority should be to form an exit plan as quickly as possible. Zimmerman is the Ford Motor Company Clinical Professor of Business Administration at Ross.
