Robert Reich has some great posts on GM.

A bit of a delay here again, but back at the end of May, former labor secretary Robert Reich had a series of great posts on GM which expanded to the larger issue of the future of manufacturing in America. I really recommend that you give them a read.

A preview:
First and most broadly, it doesn't make sense for America to try to maintain or enlarge manufacturing as a portion of the economy. Even if the U.S. were to seal its borders and bar any manufactured goods from coming in from abroad--something I don't recommend--we'd still be losing manufacturing jobs. That's mainly because of technology.
