General Motors is an American success story. They started at the dawn of the 20th century, with a humble origin story; Buick began with horse drawn buggies, before starting its foray into the automobile market. For years it grew and expanded gobbling up smaller companies and incorporating them into its family.

If you look at all of these problems individually, the causes are…
It is mind blowing how one of the Big Three major American automotive companies such as General Motors could neglect such a crucial procedure as reporting a safety issue. Wealth inequality became present, and clear, when the company decided that it would be too costly to immediately fix the problem. Instead, they decided to prioritize their profit over the lives of the individuals, in this case – their customers. The neglect continued for years until they were…

Companies that many would least expect, like Honda and Toyota, have a number of diesel products available overseas that are not available here. As diesel technology is becoming more popular car companies are beginning to slowly phase diesels into the American car market. Audi, Volkswagen, and Mercedes already had diesels in the car market, but now other manufacturers are beginning to unveil their own new diesel options. Chrysler has begun to put diesels in the light duty Ram 1500s and Jeep Grand…
