Since when does the auto industry only improve when forced to by the government?
This editorial makes that outrageous claim.
It does not mention the first big change, namely the introduction of the automobile in the 19th century.
Subsequent improvements such as self-starters, automatic transmissions, power brakes, and power steering, were made by the industry without the presence or action of government regulators.The only changes “Detroit” is forced to make is the ones that consumers do not want. No wonder the automakers are going broke
So what kind of stupid claim is this.
