Boy, what do you do when you find yourself in a heap of trouble and your uncle won't help?
We don't know, either, but the U.S. government has denied GM's request for ten thousand million dollars in order to "merge" with Chrysler. We haven't commented on this before now because we figured it was all made up. There is no reason GM should buy Chrysler. Well, no good reason. We bet if this does happen, GM will just end up shutting down Chrysler's production.
Anyway, the issue here is no loan from Uncle Sam to merge two dying companies. What happens next?
