not only did he not save GM, he guaranteed that they will fail again, and probably within the next 5 years.
he didn’t fix the problem. unsustainable and extortionist claims on GM by the parasitic unions will doom GM again.
You would probably enjoy reading “General Mayhem” by Bill Hempel. Bill rose up the ranks at GM from General Motors Institute to an executive position, and his book is an expose of how GM worked. The revelations were mostly shocking to me, and included excesses by union and management.
The subtitle of the book reads “An insiders look at the failures of a corporate giant”.
Bill is my cousin, but the book is still an important read.
