The Road Ahead for Ford and GM by Jack Lessenberry

Today, Jack Lessenberry features a conversation with journalist Jerry Flint.
Jerry Flint has covered the automotive industry for major publications for more than half a century. These days he's of the opinion that "General Motors and Ford can't compete head to head with Toyota and Honda, not any more." But he thinks they can still survive.
Jack writes in his essay:
What needs to happen now -- right now -- is for the governor and other leaders of this state to convene a statewide summit meeting on the auto industry and Michigan's economic future.

We need not only the Big Three themselves at this summit, but economists. Budget experts. Politicians. Historians. We need to take a look at the big picture of what the auto industry means to our state.
