A Modest Proposal

by Tom Bozzo

If the Detroit automakers are, as it appears, to shrink their way into longer-range viability, why not exercise some planning muscles to match unemployed auto engineering and production resources with capacity-constrained domestic auto startups (e.g. Tesla, Fisker, Aptera) that would offer the sort of advanced, efficient, and baggage-free products Obama auto industry policy says it wants to promote? Sure, it's "industrial policy," but let's face it: that cow is out of the barn, through the fence, and off grazing in the next county.

Were this Larry Summers's blog, you'd have to watch out for the date.
